Yeah, I noticed this too... that's what I get for adopting someone 
else's code I guess...

I think the way around it would be to modify the player viewpoint 
between renderers.

I don't know if I'll have time to do this in the near future, but I'll 
look into it...
Anyone else who wants to take a hack at it should feel welcome too...
