The Mission Pinball Framework
Software for powering real pinball machines. 100% free. 100% open source

http://missionpinball.org/
The Mission Pinball Framework (“MPF”) is a free Python-based pinball software framework that’s used to run real pinball machines. It allows both casual builders and hard-core programmers to create the software to run their pinball machines—whether it’s new game code for an existing pinball machine, a “re-theme” of an old machine, or totally custom / homebrew machine built from scratch.

MPF is cross-platform and runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, and the Raspberry Pi.
