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.

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/brell was updated on 19. Nov 2023 to add a fourth section. Available here

Problem with opening saved mansion

Not sure if this is a mansion-specific issue or perhaps something more general.

However, after making it to the first save and quitting the game, i tried to open the save i got a message saying: 
"The mansion file 'Three Way Mansion.zip' could not be found.  Please make sure that this mansion is inside the custom mansion folder, etc."
The same thing happens if the game is suspended and i try to resume from where i left off.

The mansion .zip file is in the custom mansions folder (i even re-downloaded it) and can be opened and played from the beginning.

Check to see if you're getting to the bottom level folder. There may be a mansion file folder within a top level folder, because that happened to me, too. In other words, there might be a folder inside custom mansions folder with the name of the mansion (folder 1), then another folder inside that one with the same name (folder 2, which contains all the mansion files).

If that's the case, move folder 2 directly to Custom Mansions folder, and get rid of the now empty folder 1. Hope that makes sense.

TWM was uploaded as a zipfile with a readme file and the zipped TWM within.  This means that after you download the file you should have a folder containing the readme and the TWM.zip.  Just drag the TWM.zip to the "Midnight Mansion HD Custom Mansions" folder if you want to play it as a zip file.  If you want to unzip it then drag the unzipped TWM folder to the "Midnight Mansion HD Custom Mansions" folder.

If you system does not automatically unzip downloaded zipped files you must do it yourself by double-clicking it.

So the hierarchy is:

The uploaded zipfile unzips to a folder containing a readme file and a zipped TWM file.

The zipped TWM file can be played "as is" or can be unzipped first to a TWM folder.
