The Mission Pinball Framework (MPF): free & open source pinball software

first birthday

Happy first birthday to the Mission Pinball Framework!

One year ago today, on July 11, 2014, we released the first public version of MPF. (Even though we had been working on MPF for about six weeks, July 11 was our first public release.)

FadeCandy RGB LED support in the Mission Pinball Framework

One of the most-requested features for the Mission Pinball Framework is support for the FadeCandy LED controller.
