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.

A new version of the Mansions Level Builder that works with HD CM's

Here is a link to MM1 Mansion Level Builder version 1.2.2, which works with HD custom mansions:


www.actionsoft.com/files/mm/LevelBuilder1.2.2.zip


To quote Vern:

"If  you get the latest version of the Level Builder (1.2.2) there is an option to turn off shadows and glows for keys and coins, I think on both a per-mansion basis, and individually.

It does not run on Lion however, and you must "export" mansions to the HD format after editing. It adds to the work, but it's still at least possible to edit mansions if you have OS X 10.6 or earlier. See the FAQ (linked elsewhere on the forums) for info on how to export to the HD format.

Oh and also, it would be good for custom mansion designers to use the new abilities in the 1.2.2 editor to fix problems in their mansions with the HD version. (For instance, some bricks that are used to hide things and cast shadows that shouldn't -- shadows should be disabled in these rooms.)"

Does this mean we can now open the HD versions of mansions in this level builder? Or do you still have to work with the regular mansions and then convert with Rezycle?

As I understand Vern above we still have to work with the old MM CM's and then convert them to HD with Rezycle.

Hi!
I am trying to open the Lever builder on my computer with Snow Leopard. I get this message as seen in the screen shot. The MLB is in the right folder together with the MM app and Game Data folder.
s there anything I can do to make it work?

The MLB has to be in the original MM1 folder, not the MM1 HD folder.  It must also be in the root of that folder.

Hello again,
Surcouf's writing (Daedalus, Cranes, Warrior's designer).
As I understand, it is not possible to use MLB since I work on 10.7.2? Undecided

One possible work-around for developing future mansions (that would make it possible, but not a lot quicker, I'm sure) would be to partition your Mac's hard drive so you have a (smaller, maybe) section that you would have - as we would in the pre-Lion/aka Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6.x) days, and install Snow Leopard (10.6.8 or under) on it, and then to work on your new custom mansions, boot up under the Snow Leopard partition, where you could use the Mansion Level Builder app, other graphics programs of your choice, Recycle, etc. to build your mansion, screens, etc.

Once you have all the part of your mansion ready, use Recycle to make the screens compatible for MM 1 HD, open your other partition (where the Lion or later version of macOS/OS X is) and copy the folder of files for your new mansion into a folder there - might be simpler to have a folder in the Desktop of your Lion+ partition  (MyComputerName -> Users-> your name-> Desktop -> MyNew MM1HD Mansions, for example) and drag and drop the folder containing each mansion's stuff into it. Then you could test it under OS X/macOS on MM1 HD and make sure it works okay (and then beta test, & once 'done', upload the zipped file to the MM 1 HD servers here.

P.S. One thing to be VERY wary about, is that if you upgrade(d) your Mac's OS to High Sierra (10.13.x), it now uses a new drive formatting system, and I have a lot of doubts that it will help on running MM 1 HD, as Vern may not have had that far forward of a vision when he built MM 1 HD so it will run okay on it).  So I expect that at the latest, Sierra (10.12.x) may be the last OS on the Mac under which we can run MM 1 HD (until Vern or someone else here connected with the forums does a total remake of MM 1 (or MM 2)).  My $0.02...
