Actionsoft's latest game, Midnight Mansion 2: The Haunted Hills,  includes 28 mansions. The 8 Built-in mansions have 3 difficulties along with 4 extra custom mansions. We don't have that many other custom MM2 mansions yet. Design your own custom mansion! Info below.  You can find out more about the game here.

The original Midnight Mansion game contains over 150 mansions. The 8 included mansions which have 3 difficulty levels each, and about 115 approved custom mansions which you can download here and also several freely uploaded mansions. To know the difference between these three types of mansions, click here.

Are you a creative person and thinking of designing a mansion yourself? Or want to know about how to upload it? Click here and we'll show you! You'll find guidelines for betatesters here.

News:
Midnight Mansion 2: The Haunted Hills version 1.0.2b has been released. This fixes a bug in Jasperlone Mountains Hard. Simply re-download the game, bring over your custom mansions folder from the old version and play on. All your saves and high scores will not be changed.

Midnight Mansion HD (MM1) is now available at the Mac App Store and at the Actionsoft website. A Windows version is now available.

Here is a list of downloadable MM1 HD ready custom mansions, which also work in the Windows version of the game.

The MM2 custom mansion Hanging Gardens of Babylon by Freddy/SandyBean/Josephine was updated on 16 Feb 2014 to add a third section.

Generic Questions about MM in general
10.11.2010 at 06:37:19
 
I am trying to send my Grandson, Grayson, a movie of my "finally" triumph with the bricks in Goron Grotto. I thought I just needed to send the movie to him, he puts it in his User Movies under Library - Application Support - Midnight Mansion - User Movies. We tried that but my movie to him - that he moved from his email - was "grayed out". Help!

While e-mailing or transferring movies from a computer to another, you must remember to compress it so nothing changes over transfer. To do this, simply right click the file and press "Compress..." and then send the .zip file to your grandson via e-mail. Smiley

I did that, Anthony, and then he should put it in his User Movies, right?

You also have to make sure the mansion version in which he is watching the movie from is corresponding to the movie it was recorded from. For example, if you played the Goron mansion 1.1, and he was watching it on 1.0, Jack's recorded actions wouldn't line up and the whole movie would be thrown off.

He has a school holiday today so we're going to work at it long-distance. Thank you for the advice.

Grayson must also *uncompress* the file before attempting to use it. (i.e. un-zip it) Just double-click it to uncompress.

If the file is "grayed out" that means it got corrupted somehow during transfer, or is still in ZIP format.

I resent it a fourth time "zipped", and that time when "unzipped", it worked. Who knows?! Thanks to all for the help. BTW, is there a place on the boards where hints (extra lives, etc), tips (how to make & view a movie, etc), directions (how to send a movie(!) etc) are posted? I tried 'searching' for posts related to movies and found very few. I seem to remember we had a topic where that kind of miscellaneous information was available.
