Configuring and Enabling Flippers/Pop Bumpers/Slingshots in LISY

Related Config File Sections

System 1/80 does not support rules in software for flippers/pop bumpers/slingshots because CPUs were not fast enough at that time. Instead, they installed a hardware relay to enable flippers/pop bumpers/slingshots by connecting them physically to the corresponding switches (similar to fliptronics).

All you have to do is to configure the game_over_relay (which is connected as light):

        number: 1
        type: light
        enable_events: ball_started
        disable_events: ball_will_end

This config will automatically enable the flippers on ball start and disable them on ball end. You can add more events to enable/disable them during the game.
