Using LEDs as display (display_light_player)¶
You can map any display to your playfield LEDs or any LEDs (e.g. a LED matrix) in your machine. This enables you to leverage any MC features and display them on any LEDs (or more specifically any lights) in your machine.
To use this in a show you can use this:
- display_lights: your_source_display: # use any display defined in your machine lights: "*" # map all lights. you can also use a tag
display_light_player: your_event: your_source_display: lights: "*"
Then map your lights to a position on the display:
lights: l_light1: number: 1 x: 0.3595817467355206 y: 0.026751757949132805 l_light2: number: 2 x: 0.34303657433971446 y: 0.02873336964906857
You can map those in the MPF monitor and then copy the locations using the
tools/monitor_to_config.py or manually. You may need to adjust
config names in the script (improvements welcome).
