Using FAST Hardware with the Mission Pinball Framework

Coming soon!

This section of the documentation is not yet complete and will be coming soon. However, if you need this now, and/or you want to share what documentation is most important to you, please email Brian. Thanks!

FAST Pinball controllers can be driven by almost any high level pinball software framework you want. Many homebrew pinball machine builders choose to use the Mission Pinball Framework (MPF) to power their FAST Pinball-based machines. MPF is open source, community-supported, and completely free to use.

MPF was originally created by Brian Madden in 2014. Brian is currently a product manager at FAST Pinball as well as the lead maintainer of MPF. This means that MPF and FAST work well together!

That said, you don't have to use MPF as your game framework. FAST Pinball controllers can be driven by any software framework that supports the FAST Serial Protocol. You can create your own framework, or write your game code so it talks directly to the FAST Pinball controllers.

Using MPF with FAST Neuron & Retro Controllers

If you're using one of FAST Pinball's new Neuron or Retro controllers, we are still working on writing the support for those for MPF. We have a dedicated guide to configuring MPF to work with our latest hardware.
