Mission Pinball Framework Media Controller

Project description

Mission Pinball Framework - Media Controller (mpf-mc)

This package is for the "Media Controller" for the Mission Pinball Framework (MPF).

The architecture of MPF breaks the pinball software into two pieces. The core engine which controls the pinball machine and runs the game logic is in the MPF package. Separate from that is the Media Controller which controls the display and sound, including the DMD, Color DMD, RGB LED DMD, and/or onscreen or LCD display. (Note that you need a media controller to drive a DMD and sound even if you don't have an on-screen LCD window. Don't worry--you can run this headless and/or in a console-only environment for those cases.)

This package (mpf-mc) is MPF's "in box" media controller which is based on Kivy and Python. It leverages OpenGL and the GPU of the computer it's running on. There are other media controller projects (at various levels of completeness) you can use with MPF built on Unity, Godot, Rust, and others.

MPF-MC runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Raspberry Pi. It can run on the same machine as the core MPF engine, or it can be a separate machine. It runs as a separate process from MPF, so it works well on a multi-core computer.
