Arduino Pinball Controller

MPF can control System6 to System11c machines directly using the Arduino Pinball Controller (APC). It contains CPU and drivers so it can also be used to build full custom machines. Uses the LISY protocol.

This is how APC generally works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4Po8OE5Zkw

See Arduino Pinball Controller Documentation on github for details.

This is an example config:

#config_version=5
hardware:
  platform: lisy
lisy:
  connection: serial
  port: com1      # change this for your setup
  baud: 115200
digital_outputs:
  game_over_relay:
    number: 1
    type: light
    enable_events: ball_started
    disable_events: ball_will_end
segment_displays:
  info_display:
    number: 0
  player1_display:
    number: 1
  player2_display:
    number: 2
  player3_display:
    number: 3
  player4_display:
    number: 4
hardware_sound_systems:
  default:
    label: APC
This example is tested to be valid MPF config. However, it is not integration tested.
