FAST Serial Protocol: Overview & First Steps

This documentation section is about the FAST Serial Protocol (FSP) commands, which are the low-level commands a host computer sends to a FAST board. Most FAST Pinball makers do not need to know about these details, since the pinball game framework (such as the Mission Pinball Framework) handles this communication for you.

If you're writing your own game framework, read the overview of how FSP works and how to connect first.

This command is very similar to the driver test QL: command. To use this command, you do NOT type Enter after the colon. Just type QL: and then use the Q, W, or Space to control the tests. Hit Enter to exit the test mode.

This is an interactive command designed to be used via a terminal emulator.

QP: <TEST_COMMAND>

<TEST_COMMAND> Q = Increase Lamp Number W = Decrease Lamp Number Space = switch between Row/COL or single Lamp
