score_queues:

Config file section

Valid in machine config files YES
Valid in mode config files NO

The score_queues: section of your config is where you configure SS style scoring queues in MPF. This is an example:

coils:
  c_chime_1000:
    number:
  c_chime_100:
    number:
  c_chime_10:
    number:
score_queues:
  score:
    chimes: c_chime_1000, c_chime_100, c_chime_10,  None
##! mode: my_mode
# in your mode
score_queue_player:
  score_2k:
    score: 2000
  score_200:
    score: 200
This example is tested to be valid MPF config. However, it is not integration tested.
