This is the dev documentation for an unreleased version of MPF!

This is the documentation for MPF 0.56+, which is the “dev” (next) release of MPF that is a work-in-progress. Unless you’re specifically looking for this version, you probably want to use the version of documentation called “latest” which is for the latest released version of MPF. That documentation is at docs.missionpinball.org/en/latest.

Machine Management

MPF includes many features to help you manage your pinball machine.

(There’s a lot to add here. This will include things like the service mode, auditor, remote monitoring and trouble reporting, etc. See: Help us to write it)


If the service mode is added to modes, the message “coil power off” will appear when the coin door is open. This is only a message: MPF cannot actually turn the coil power off. You must ensure that your power system is wired appropriately to turn HV off when the coin door is open.
