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.

How did Jack get up there with the gray door closed? Did he jump off that fast moving platform?

I think you are stuck.   Tongue

Yep.. stuck. Sorry about that. I should have added escape platforms here. I'll send a patch to Vern.

Did you report this as a JS? I don't remember seeing that report.

No, Rob, I didn't.  I was very late playing this part and I thought it was only me making things difficult! Sorry!

That's OK Wink

I never would have thought you were just trying to be difficult and wouldn't have been upset.  Oh... I might have grumbled a bit (I was pretty tired towards the end of testing), but I would have been thankful anyway.

I can tell that I thought this might be problem because of the sign I put at the top. Still... I shouldn't have relied on players reading that sign - I don't know what I was thinking. I must have missed this on my last sweep through the mansion.

Fortunately, the fix shouldn't be too bad...

Windrider's Jack has super powers to be able to jump off that platform and not die.

Windrider - I feel bad that you got stuck there, and I hope you made use of the last save point since it really wasn't that far back from where you were.

Unfortunately, the "fix" will not help your situation, since all it really does is take further (lethal) steps to prevent Jack from opening those doors prematurely. I considered using escape platforms, however they are slightly problematic here. Then, I tried extra gray doors which also didn't work as I hoped (no sense going into the gory details).

Instead I settled on zappers in front of each yellow door, that could be deactivated as Jack progressed through the maze in the middle of the room. That ended up being closest to my original intention.

I'll send it to Vern as soon as I finish testing it out. Thanks very much for reporting the issue!

Update: - I sent the updated mansion to Vern last week. As I mentioned in this post, the update will prevent anyone else from getting into your situation.
