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.

Warning! Room limit or Level Builder will crash! (Read 5298 times)

Warning! Room limit or Level Builder will crash!
16.09.2011 at 01:29:39
 
I just had a guy send me a mansion he had done where the Level Builder was crashing whenever he tried to make changes to a room and save it.

After digging around, I discovered that he was running up against a "resource file size limit" that I had forgotten about and never documented. The problem is, I now can't find the documentation. So I don't know what the actual number is. It is either 2727, or double that -- 5454.

Anyway, this guy's mansion has 5447 resources in it. Each room requires a minimum of 12 resources (and each sign adds an additional resource to that total). Plus a handful of other resources needed for the mansion in general. So if you have 100 rooms in your mansion, you can assume it has somewhat over 1100 resources.

This guys' mansion happens to have 452 rooms. That times 12 is 5424, plus the other resources for the signs and the mansion data totals around 5454, where the builder started crashing for him.

This issue will NOT be an issue once I port the Mansion Builder to be HD, because it no longer uses resources to store the mansion data. (This is what happens when you "convert" a mansion to the HD format using Rezycle.)

However, since you are all designing mansions using the old level builder in the meantime, I wanted to let you know about this issue, so you don't add too many rooms to your mansion!

OK and how many resources?  I'm asking because I have converted MM&M to the HD and it works with minor changes.  I haven't uploaded it yet because Freddy hasn't given me the permission to do so.
And of course MM&M does not crash the level builder either.

Yeah, see I'm using Mansion Level Builder 2, and right now my mansion has 443 rooms. My mansion is expecting to have around 500+ rooms, though. What's the maximum number of rooms I can have in that mansion builder?
