This is the documentation the latest work-in-progress version of MPF!

This is the documentation for MPF 0.57, 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. You can always update to the latest at any time.

Machine Management

MPF includes many features to help you manage your pinball machine.

(There’s a lot to add here. This will include things like the service mode, auditor, remote monitoring and trouble reporting, etc. See: Help us to write it)


If the service mode is added to modes, the message “coil power off” will appear when the coin door is open. This is only a message: MPF cannot actually turn the coil power off. You must ensure that your power system is wired appropriately to turn HV off when the coin door is open.
