This is the documentation the latest work-in-progress 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. This is probably ok, and means you’ll be on the latest, cutting-edge version of MPF.

However, if you want a more stable version, select the v:stable version from the lower-left corner of this page, which is the most recent version that is not getting new updates.

If you are new to MPF, we have recently rewritten the installation process which only applies to this “latest” 0.56, so you probably want to stay here because the prior installation process doesn’t work on the latest OS and Python versions.


MPF-MC Event

Posted when the MPF-MC is available to start showing slides and playing sounds.

Note that this event does not mean the MC is done loading. Instead it’s posted at the earliest possible moment that the core MC components are available, meaning you can trigger “boot” slides from this event (which could in turn be used to show asset loading status, boot progress, etc.)

If you want to show slides that require images or video loaded from disk, use the event “init_done” instead which is posted once all the assets set to “preload” have been loaded.

This event does not have any keyword arguments
