RE: PS3 blacked out player/unknown player glitch/cheat.

The first thing you describe sounds like the effect of the Stasis Mod Auxiliary upgrade, but the second (invisible light cycle trails) is a glitch.
Now that you mention it I guess I have seen the "unknown player" glitch on disc wars maps, too. I don't think it's reproducible at will, though.
It just makes the match more challenging. Go with it.
What do you call a program who brings a disc to a light cycle battle? Derezzed.
