Interesting Paragon Mod

Post by DrDude »

Saw this post on Pinside about a Paragon modified to have a ball-return gate: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic ... st-5096191

Very interesting! Quite professional job, but as Greg Kmiec notes, there are several clues that this was not a Factory Conversion. In particular, the use of speaker-wire and the "incorrect" insert colours. I would likely have been fooled by this!

Love the research, but also I think it'd make a great addition to an already great game.

Paragon is a destroyer of men and women. It eats players and wizards alike, while showing you the most beautiful backglass in the history of pinball (way better than Flash). Please don't F with Paragon gameplay cause when you do, a pinball designer cries themselves to sleep in a fetal position.
