A mate of mine has just bought a LOTR and the playfield looks a bit green. I notice the recent PAPA tutorial is the same. Is this the original design of the game or do the reds fade over time?
IIRC, the reds were faint (possibly clogged screen) on the 3rd or 4th run. I've owned both and favor the flesh colored faces on a perfectly screened playfield.
No playfields are perfect. Some have registration issues, alignment issues, or color issues. A great example is IPB Addams Family playfields. They look like they are 1/8" off side-to-side, as the switches aren't centered in the outlanes.
