The New Mystery Manor for Android and iOS Version 2.12.0

The New Mystery Manor for Android and iOS Version 2.12.0

The New Mystery Manor for Android and iOS Version 2.12.0 was released today. This update brings Guilds to our Manor and changes out the Bedroom design for a whole new room. I will add a page specifically for the Guild events later but right now I’ll tell you what I have figured out.

What GI Tells us about Version 2.12.0

Detectives, the Mystery Manor brings new surprises once again!

Read up on all that’s new below, then go and explore the Manor for yourself!

🔍 Player guilds! Join other detectives, take part in guild events, complete special quests and get valuable rewards. You can talk in a guild chat and get unique items for guild points!
🔍 Updated Bedroom! Check out this room’s updated look. It also features new hidden objects and improved images of old ones.
🔍 Updated Yard! Marvel at improved animations and all-new sounds. We’re doing everything we can to make gameplay better.

In this version, the following bugs were fixed:
🔧 Problems with how the event Underwater Treasures in the Match Three mini-game worked were solved
🔧 Problems with the quest chain Zodiac was solved
🔧 Fixed texts in the quest chain at the Japanese Garden
🔧 Fixed a bug of how Bottle with a message in the Match Three mini-game was moving; now it can be removed from the field like it’s supposed to
🔧 Added training object layouts for exploring the rooms for the first time
🔧 Improved the award window for the Chasing Chests event ( I think this is Underwater Treasures) in the Match Three mini-game
🔧 Fixed the incorrect performance of endless tools during the training
🔧 Added a new visual for the indication of goals in the Match Three mini-game
🔧 Fixed a bug of the window to enter the Match Three mini-game; now, after buying additional energy, you’ll enter the mini-game automatically, just like the rooms

Also, soon the game will have some very cool new features:
Daily activities
Another new room
Improved several large and important windows; at the request of the players, not only the visual design will be updated, but also the functional
Clans (Guilds) are only the beginning of sociality, that was promised. We are already working on the possibility to customize the clans

What We Know about Version 2.12.0

  • You can ask questions and share information on 2 Facebook pages for The New Mystery Manor for Android and iOS
  • The New Bedroom – all I can say is what a nightmare. The items in the room to find are so small they are very hard to find. And on every search the list changes. I wouldn’t mind if it changed if I could just see them. Even zooming in they are super hard. And of course they made this Bedroom the room to search for the first Guild Event.
    • We were awarded some useful charms for the Disruption in the Bedroom.
    • Your Bedroom Mastery Star Level should have started at zero. If it doesn’t shut down your game and reopen it.Bedroom v 2.12.0
  • Guilds – when you open your game after updating to Version 2.12.0 there will be a new menu item in the bottom row of menus. I will later add a page just for guild but here’s what I know so far.
    • You are randomly added to a guild. Since we don’t have friends in the game yet we can’t pick. I am told at a later date we will be able to create our own guilds. You can quit your guild and be randomly added to another guild. I’m not sure if you can quit and not be in a guild.
    • One of the guild challenges is that this random order puts people that speak different languages or are in way different time zones together. It is hard to coordinate.
    • There is a window that lists the guild members. Mine added up to 10 while I was poking around and investigating the guild.
    • It appears our guild was given a random name unless the first member named it. Some guilds have a lot of guild points but when I asked the person in mine that had so many points how she got them she didn’t know.
    • There is a window for chat.
    • An Event window that doesn’t explain anything but this is what I gathered.
        • Event Name – Explore Bedroom
        • The M in a Shield tells how many each. This seems to correspond with nothing and the same symbol is used on the Event page to say how many searches you have done and the main guild page to say how many points you have. I will have to gather more information on it.
        • Chest symbol – in this event is says to 0/24. When you reach one of the chest points in the bar below it will go up. You do not collect from those chests until the end of the event. In this event the first chest is at 40, then 80, 150 and a bar with arrows that does not scroll for me right now. When our guild reached the 40 mark we were credited with 1/24. That number increases 1 for each chest mark you hit.
        • When you hit the 80 chest mark you can see the next after 150 is 200. It’s an odd numbering system.
        • Time for Event is over to the right. My timer started out with 2 days 15 hours.
        • The View button just takes you to the Bedroom to search.
        • When you tap on the small white down arrow you will get the list of guild members that have participated in the event so far and how many searches they have done.
          • I notice I have done 8 searches and when I look at guild points I have 12. I can’t explain.
          • Someone reported not getting credit for their search so make sure you get credit. Take screen shots even if you don’t know if you’ll need them. You can trash them later.
        • Shop tab – You can buy charms with your guild points but it takes a lot.

      Guild Event Window

    • When you look at the players contributions in the event window you can see in my guild that the 1% contributors are red and if you tap on that it says, “Player receives an incentive prize for a small contribution to the team result”. I wonder if the ones that only searched 2 rooms would drop into the 1% range as the others in the guild do more.Small Contribution Guild
    • If you go to the ratings by opening up the Achievements list and tapping on the button in the upper right corner and then the bottom tab on the right you will see Guild Rankings. There are quite a few guilds that have a lot of guild points for a feature that just appeared.
    • You can try searching the Help section on Guilds. I’m going to go browse through that now and see if I can learn anything.Guild Help

I’m going to release this post right now but may add to it as I figure more stuff out over the rest of the day.

Dreadful interface changes, anything good happen?

    Detective V

    First explore, upside-down-mode!!!
    You kidding me??

Maurs

I play the match 3 games through the contest window. Do you know how they count how many items you get eg shells, stars etc.
Do they count if you use the ball which destroys all of one item or just what is destroyed by having three or more together.
I have found when I use the ball it doesn’t seem to count.
I have just completed a game and winners were in the thousands, how can that be when it uses 75 energy for each attempt.

Thanks Maurs

nseroka

In the Daily Contest room search yesterday , I explored the Living Room 23 times . Many players got chests yesterday for exploring the Living room 23 times. I did not. Now GI tells me that it is timed and you have to be one of the first ones to accomplish that or you don’t get a chest. I complained that they should notify the players that all the chests are taken , otherwise we players are wasting our energy exploring!

    Dorian

    Wow, this is concerning. I have some empathy for those in support that have to deliver these responses. The stories keep changing. I was told that the threshold for receiving rewards is 3% instead of the stated ‘red line’ for the Lazy Snatchin.

    Snowdoll

    This is how the contests work in the old MM too and it is unfair as it gives players in certain time zones an advantage.

    MM_Admin

    Well, that certainly gives preference to players in the earlier time zones and needs to be reconsidered. I don’t even see it until at least 8 hours after it starts. I will definitely bring this up.

      nseroka

      Thank you! I’m joining your Super Sleuth group. You are such a big help to us.

Detective V

Hello,
I saw mention somewhere this is a Beta release, and has been for a good while now. Any news on when this might move forward to a proper product? I am very grateful for the efforts you are all putting in, but feel that GI are relying on the past MM community to test and support this rather than looking for new players. For the moment, I will continue playing as resources allow but will not be investing any more money.
Regards.

    MM_Admin

    This is no longer considered a beta release. I think your spending decision is a wise move.

ma.dorman

I don’t see a guild event for today (Wednesday). Hopefully this means that Gi is working on the problem of the missing prizes for those of us who worked hard on it but were unable to get the rewards!

    MM_Admin

    They are still working on the problem.

Lin

The guild event chest that has the jewels and coffee is like a carrot they hold in front of you but you cannot reach. When you reach that chest it suddenly has lower rewards.

    MM_Admin

    It’s a bug and they’re working on fixing it.

Dorian

I noticed that my level for Match Three has also been adjusted from the 60’s down to 49.

Paula

Do you have a list on how to get seeds, runes, bullets, and certificates for entering rooms? I can’t do any quests because they are all in these rooms 😕

    Kelly

    Hi Paula. A good way to get those items is to banish the roamers. For example the Corgi gives 3 bullets.

ma.dorman

I had no button to get a reward and got NOTHING! When I think of all the time and resources I wasted on the event, I’m not playing the next one at all. What a waste!

    MM_Admin

    They are working on the issue.

      ma.dorman

      Excellent….problems like these will happen with new games and new updates. I’m just massively disappointed is all.

    Paula

    Thank,you!

Deb

Brian I was just going to ask the same thing. We did not receive anything either. I contacted GI, they said they are working on a solution. I am curious if anyone received chest

Brian

Is anyone getting the reward chests for guild events?

    Nancy Speicher

    Nope

Detective kit

How do I put in a ticket after not receiving reward from guild event. I cannot find anywhere to contact GI in new game. Our guild did 284 toward bedroom event. Instead of better award the goalposts slid backward , you needed 380 to get reward with a mine, where earlier it was 280 to get same reward. Also when event finished there was no collect button, it just opened with new event for dressing room. So I would like to put in a ticket.

    Dorian

    To create a ticket, go to Settings > Help > Contact Us. You should take a couple of screen shots, the Guild with your points and the Events screen Which does not show past events and add these to the incident.

Grannykin

Playing new manor with guild friends. Don’t understand. We had 4 chests in the bag but don’t appear to have received any chests. New venture is now in progress but counters haven’t reset and searches aren’t being added!

Lin

They just told me we should be able to see the 2 events separately but we only see the new event and no rewards and nothing to clicke on to claim rewards.

    Kelly

    Huge amounts of people don’t seem to be able to get their rewards at the moment but from all of GIs responses it looks like they haven’t acknowledged there is a issue with it.

Esther

Does anyone know how to get the chests after the events finish? Our guild searched a total of 150+ (the ones that counted) so we should get 3 chests I think. Somehow I can only see the new event, but not the old one and have no idea how to get the reward.

    Snowdoll

    Under the Event tab it shows the Bedroom event first with a “Claim Reward” button that you need to click on – all the rewards from any chests you won are combined here.

      Beverley

      I did not get the button. It went straight to the new event.

        Kelly

        I did not get the button either. I’m still not able to claim my rewards.

      Deb

      Our tab did not have a claim button

    Dorian

    I got no button and no update to my guild rewards count

Kelly

I had nothing come up saying I had won anything at the end of the Bedroom event! Did anyone else get anything?

Detective Mog

Any idea how we get any chests we may have won from the guild event to explore the bedroom? We didn’t get many but did get some, a new guild event has started now and no suggestion of how to claim chests from the previous one??

    Kelly

    I just posted the same. No prizes for me either- so many bugs in the guild.

Renee

The head of my guild told me he got the extra M points because he started the guild.

    MM_Admin

    It is my understanding that everyone was randomly assigned to guilds. I have opened a ticket to ask why some guild members have thousands of points when we should have all started at zero. You have to be fair to ALL players. I would love to start my own guild and have people I communicate in it.

    And if you look through the top numbers for Guild Points they’re all widely different. So it’s not like people that started a guild all got 1,000 points. I don’t even know who named my guild but there is a lower level player, 22, she has 1614 Guild points but says she doesn’t know how she got them. She started out with a high number. The top guild points a player has is 12,900+. It was high during the initial guild creations.

      Lin

      I hope they will soon give an option to opt out of being in a guild. In our guild only 5 guild members showed interest in participating in the event.

Pat Hilliard

Hey Sharon, why do some of the guild members get an option to watch a video to either get 30 energy or half off required energy to explore? All I get is an option to buy 1 of 3 different kinds of energy. Rather frustrating when you are trying to do an event.

    MM_Admin

    I don’t know what their reasoning is for giving some players these things and not others. I do think all players should get the same offers and bonuses. I have made it clear to GI from the beginning that it should be possible for all players to have a chance in every competion. I will pass this on to them.

      Pat Hilliard

      And one of our guild members has “Detectives” added to the beginning of his name. He was unaware of it. Do you know why? He was the one telling the rest of us about getting free energy from watching videos.

      Another thing about the size of the items, if you re-boot your iPad, they get a little larger. I do not know why? I wonder if it has to do with the version of iOS you are using. I have an update waiting but I am afraid to upgrade. I don’t know how the new MM will be affected.

        MM_Admin

        If my items got bigger I’m really blind. I took some screen shots today. I’ll get them posted tomorrow.

        I’m on iOS 11.4.1 and it says I’m up to date.

        I think there was some bug that put that Detective in front of some players names.

    Detective V

    I have never seen watch a video-where does this appear?

      Pat Hilliard

      If you click explore and you do not have enough energy, it gives you the option to watch a video to give you 30 energy or half off the required energy to enter again.

        Detective V

        I only get an option to buy 3 items. And, the X doesn’t work so I have to close the game and go back in to get out of it.

      🐸frogger

      Me either 😒

Viola

I’m confused as to how the compass works when using it. It doesn’t seem to be pointing at anything. Can someone explain how to use it? Thank you

    Dorian

    The compass will point to the direction of one of the items in the ‘find’ window. The item might be on the other side of the room. If you find the item in a few seconds, the compass will then point to another item in the ‘find’ list. On occasion, multiple items will be in the same direction and the compass point will not change. The compass point seems pretty accurate.

      MM_Admin

      I did a couple of videos using the Compass. I didn’t like it. I will get them posted and let you know when. Sorry, I thought I had already posted them.

        ma.dorman

        I found the compass clumsy and wobbly. It seemed to go in all directions and have trouble settling. Even when I was close to an object in the bedroom, I couldn’t be sure what it was pointing to since the item was unknown to me and so very tiny.

          Lin

          I agree with you. The compass uses up too much time swinging .

Lin

We are working on the 150 chest which now has the same rewards as the 80 chest. Seems the chests are advancing but rewards aren’t.

    Dorian

    I hope this is just a display error as my guild is working towards 200 which should include the diamonds.

      MM_Admin

      I have a ticket in for this problem.

    MM_Admin

    I opened a ticket for this. There are a lot of problems with this guild event.

Dorian

Did anyone notice that stars and energy was adjusted for rooms other than Bedroom? My Hall and Kitchen were 5 full stars and are now lower after the update.

Also, the Collection and Articact numbers are no longer present. This makes the collection lists maintained by this page are now a problem.

    Dorian

    It also seems collection items from exploring rooms are dropping at a slower rate. It also seems that the rate of filling the Stars has decreased meaning it takes more completed rooms to complete each Star. This is not good for newer players who need to get to Star level 5 to complete some of the quests.

      mpruggiero

      I actually put in a complaint with them. I’ve already spent the energy to achieve these levels. AND, I don’t mind spending a few dollars when I see a good buy like last week when I had an offer for 850 diamonds for $19.99. You can buy a lot of cheese cake with that, lol. So, when I say I’ve spent the energy, I really mean it.

      I only just this weekend got the rest of the zodiac quests because I finally found the book of white magic. But, I need something from the hall. It says it’s findable. But, I have a very sneaking suspicion it’s not going to show up now until I complete that fifth star, because I’ve searched numerous times and the other items that were trade with items fell fairly quickly. Don’t know if that makes any sense.

        MM_Admin

        It does. I couldn’t find the Crane in the Hall during the mist and after at least 10 tries sent a ticket and they sent it to me!

    MM_Admin

    We noticed. I will report this issue. I wish they would hold a release until its tested and fixed instead of pushing it out.

    At least the table will be able to help us until they fix the numbers. The information is still correct.

    MM_Admin

    I was looking at my game more closely because the mastery stars were adjusted down in all my non-key rooms. Someone said they went from needing 10 keys to 30 in the key rooms. I’m sure my rooms that needed keys were at a maximum of 20 keys and 2 mastery stars. Now I see they are all at 3 mastery stars and need 30 keys.

    There is something very fishy here. Has anyone else seen this?

      Detective Mog

      yes, I noticed this!! this means I am likely to play even less as the paid rooms are expensive and keys hard to get.. this game is just getting too expensive…

        Snowdoll

        This happened in the Library and Fortune Telling rooms for me but Garden and Hunting rooms are still on two stars.

      mpruggiero

      Explains how I finally found that book of white magic…must have needed to get mastery level three…#winning 😝😝

      Of course I’ll never finish the I Ching divination quest now……

        MM_Admin

        Me too! I see we need 3 of those Book of Changes to complete that quest.

      mpruggiero

      I had a reply to the increased level in rooms requiring keys this morning:

      We have checked the situation The Mastery level was changed in the update in accordance with changes in the number of points needed to raise it. It’s not a glitch. Now it’s easier to gain Mastery levels.

      My reply to them was that does not explain why we need to explore all the non keyed room 400 times (I did the math, that’s without any phenomena) to regain mastery level 5 in room previously achieved.

        Kelly

        That’s the exact reply I got about a different query (which also doesn’t answer the problem I have). I think they are misunderstanding some of our issues.

        MM_Admin

        I have been speaking to GI about this. I tracked some of the numbers of searches to reach 5 stars but do not have good numbers. I would like to make a table that shows how many at each star level. I did 2 searches for 1 star. In a room that takes keys that’s 2 chances to use 10 keys then then increase dramatically. At 3 and 4 keys the number of keys it takes to get the next star is insanely high.

          mpruggiero

          When I was back in the bathroom,it took 4 searches to get 1% of the 5th star.and then after 8 it went to 2%. That’s 400 searches and way too much extra energy to do it again…especially since they are saying that mastery levels have changed for all levels as their reply to the question why making it easier lowered our mastery level!!

Nancy

Does the guild max out at 42 successful completions of searching the bedroom? I’ve completed a few more but only have credit for 42 as does someone else in the guild. Does anyone have more than 42?

    MM_Admin

    I have 47. But I had 1 not count this morning. Then later in the day they started counting. A couple of my guild members said they have them not counting. I opened a ticket.

    I restarted my iPad in between.

DragonEyzs

I cannot find some items in the bedroom because they are very tiny!! How are we supposed to see them?

    ma.dorman

    turn off and reboot your ipad and they will be a bit larger.

Detective V

I am finding the new mm very hard and not very enjoyable. I have rooms to open but not getting what is needed to do that.
The changed bedroom is very difficult for me and is yielding few rewards. I just seem to explore the hallway and the kitchen and then banish Roamers as the other rooms take so much energy can only explore 1 a day. Have quests to charge collections but don’t get the chargers. Don’t know where to get the orange klein flask from, not got even 1 yet. Sorry to be so negative.

    MM_Admin

    Grubby Snatchin has the Klein Flasks but there’s a lower chance of getting the orange one than the others.

    I have a whole row on quests I can’t complete. If you look at the Daily Contest you can see what the room of the day is. Whether you place in the competition or not there is a prize for doing 3, 8 and 20 of the listed rooms. Oddly those prizes add up. The prize for 8mgives you chargers for the Artifscts collections which you will need in the future. I usually focus on the room of the day.

    My assumption is that GI will catch up and fix our biggest complaints. In the meantime I’m just working on building up my experience and increasing my energy so I can play for me than 30 minutes at a time.

      Detective V

      Thank you for replying
      I try the daily room contest, usually get to 3 but rarely 8 and only once 20 when I got a level up for more energy to use
      Energy is my biggest problem.

LaDonna aka LDaylily

I rebooted as suggested and items were visible to me. I like that it changes to different items, more challenging! I had already become bored with this version.

Viola

I think the M in the shield corresponds to the shop tab in the guild section. It shows items costing M’s

    MM_Admin

    Yes, it’s a representation of the guild points but they use it in 2 places and those numbers are different. I think it needs to be something different on the Event page. Yesterday I earned 29 guild points with 25 searches.

      Snowdoll

      I completed my first search with 4 stars in the bedroom and it gave me 6 points under both the “i” tab and the “Event” tab. Then I reloaded the game so it dropped to 1 star and my next two searches didn’t count and then I got 1 point per search for the next four searches. Now it shows that I have 10 points under the “i” tab and 5 points under the “Event” tab, so it looks like a glitch and it reset the Event points but not the Guild ones.

      It also seems like they have reduced the number of items you get from searching with the new update.

      Esther

      I think you get 5 points for visiting the game. We have guild members that didn’t search the bedroom but they did get 5M

        Snowdoll

        We have two players who searched once and have 1 point and two who it says joined the Guild but didn’t search and have zero points, so it’s all very confusing!

ssimson1999

FINALLY got the update. NOT HAPPY with the new bedroom. I have had to use so many tools just to find the items and beat the clock. As a matter of fact, I’ve decided I will not search the bedroom until they fix it. That is absolutely ridiculous to have the items be so tiny you can’t even find them. I see no point in that other than eating up resources. Because I have 4 stars in the bedroom, I have so many items to find in 3 minutes, and because they are new and improved items I have no idea what they even look like. So angry, gggrrrrrr.

    ssimson1999

    Dorian Jefferson, suggested below that you if restart the game. I just rebooted my ipad that the bedroom stars and size & quantity of items does change. So I did that and went from 4 stars to 2 and went from a ridiculous number of things to find down to a manageable number. Will take some getting used to……but at least I am not using up only my tools which I have been hoarding.

cdoo

I have no update for my game in the app store?? When will it show up???

    Dorian

    I had to go to the App Store and find it. It then allowed me to download. This is the second time I did not get an update notice.

      MM_Admin

      I had to find it in the App Store too but I had others apps there that hadn’t updated so it’s something with Apple.

      porcherc

      Same here … I had to go to the app store.

finnty7

Practically everything you type in chat is deemed inappropriate! I sent a screen shot of something I typed that was deemed inappropriate and asked them to point out exactly what was offensive.

    Snowdoll

    I know it is so frustrating!

    Pat H

    I am with you on this. Seems if you mention any word that might be derogatory in any way, you get flagged. I typed “Bummer” yesterday and it was deemed inappropriate. Their inappropriate filter needs to be relaxed a bit.

ma.dorman

I’m struggling with this new update. My game is struggling and jerking and finally just locked up. Then it crashed.
Also, the new bedroom is a complete mystery to me and a struggle. I’m barely able to finish it and so far I cannot with out the help of many tools. I’ll run out of tools soon. Grrrrr….hope I catch on soon.

    MM_Admin

    The items are really tiny. Plus in silhouettes there are multiple square/rectangular things. Key, spoon. Inkwell lookks like a box, jewelry box looks like a box. TV remote and keyboard, envelope and magazine all look same without the name.

      Dorian

      After shutting down and restarting, the Bedroom resets, stars and energy are also adjusted. The items seem a bit larger and the number of items to find is much more manageable.

      The counter for thenumber of collections and artifacts is missing.

        ssimson1999

        Thank for that. I did restart my ipad and the bedroom stars and sizes did change a bit. At least it is more manageable then before. But still not super happy.

        MM_Admin

        I dint notice that the items looked bigger. I’m on a 12” iPad and I find them tiny. Those mini and phone players must have a really hard time.

        Thanks for pointing out the collection numbers. I’ll get it reported to my contact.

      bren5775

      I did 12 searches, they counted for daily contest but not for the guild event, then I went to the guild event window and they started counting. So I guess you have to go there before you start searching . You can’t use the word “contest” in guild chat!

Anon

The leader changes whoever has the highest points. The 0/24 I gather is number of players to search 24x since that is when ours changed.

    MM_Admin

    We have done 46 room searches as a guild. We are at 1/24. I don’t understand what you are saying? Ours went up to 1/24 when we reached the first chest for 40 searches.

      anon

      it went to 1 when the first person did 24 searches, then to 2 after a second person did 24 also.

        MM_Admin

        No one in our guild has done 24. We went up when we hit the 40 total mark. How many total has your guild done?

          anon

          we have completed 200 so far. yes I believe it is 24 chests. the next 2 chest increments are 280 and 380 showing

    Pat h

    No, there are 24 chests you can earn for the event.
