FAST Pinball Tutorials and Learning Guides

Wow pinball is awesome, but also there's a lot to learn!

What is homebrew pinball?

We have a guide which explains what the custom or homebrew pinball community is all about.

First steps with FAST

If you're brand new to FAST Pinball, we have two tutorials which walk you through connecting to your new FAST Pinball hardware.

Using FAST Pinball hardware with MPF

At FAST Pinball, we make the hardware, and you make your game. Many people choose to use the free and open source Mission Pinball Framework, though you certainly don't have to use it. Since connecting to a FAST Pinball controller is just done via a virtual serial port, you can write your game software in whatever language you want.

Wiring guides

We have an entire series of wiring guides on how to wire your machine, including the basics you need to understand such as grounding, fuse sizing, wire selection, etc.

Videos

If you prefer to learn by watching, we have hundreds of hours of videos (created by us and others) linked from our videos page.
