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. With most control systems, this is only a message. (Unless you're using FAST Pinball's smart power filter board which allows MPF to control the 48V circuit.) You must ensure that your power system is wired appropriately to turn high voltage off when the coin door is open.
