Warning

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.

If you would like to use the FAST RGB LED DMD, follow the instructions for the How to configure a “SmartMatrix” RGB LED DMD.

You can copy the following example (and replace com12 with your com port):

hardware:
  rgb_dmd: smartmatrix
smartmatrix:
  smartmatrix_1:
    port: com12
    baud: 4000000
    old_cookie: false
This example is tested to be valid MPF config. However, it is not integration tested.
hardware:
  rgb_dmd: smartmatrix
smartmatrix:
  smartmatrix_1:
    port: com12
    baud: 4000000
    old_cookie: false
