When switching to first person view to attack ghosts, the rendering turns black with only text & light effects displaying. Switching back normal rendering seems impossible even with software render or openGL hack/skipdraw... I've only managed to fix the bug for a while by loading a savestate done in the chapter opening screen (static image), so maybe it's initial boot or video related, I don't know... it's strange...
