MPF supports ball locks which are used to hold a ball that has entered a Ball Devices. To separate use-cases MPF supports two cases of ball locks:

  • Multiball_locks which lock balls for a multiball. Locked balls are no longer in play (i.e. deducted from ball count).
  • Ball_holds which only hold balls temporarily. This is used to play animations or stop the ball during a video mode. Those balls are technically still in play.
