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.

Is this supposed to happen?

The room dims down abruptly and stays pretty dark compared to the other rooms.  It doesn't affect the play at all, but is unnerving if not deliberate.

This is a cool effect Shocked Or would be if it was intentional, indeed.

Does it happen every time you play? Has anyone observed it in a different mansion? Maybe this should be reported as a general bug.

I think I have played it in MM HD but I can try again. I have Snow Leopard by the way.

I was mostly wandering around in the mansions testing stuff out,; I'll report back the next time I get to that spot.  Smiley

I've not seen it in any other mansion.

OS 10.7.2 here.

I tried playing it yesterday, and wasn't able to duplicate the problem. I wondered if I wasn't precisely repeating what you did.

Were you using a cheat code while it happened? I know that Vern has some code in place to degrade some of the graphics effects if frame rate goes down for a while. I'm unsure of the extent of this degradation, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't meant to be as extreme as this. It does generally fit in with what you're seeing since it doesn't happen immediately.

It could be related I suppose. It also looked like a few of the tiles were a little messed up in that image. We saw it in some of the original mansions as well when converting them for the new game.
