Alan Wake v1.03 Release Notes (Patch #2)

Update 2 - Alan Wake v1.03 release notes:

  • Add Latin-American Localization support (download the Free DLC from Steam and add -locale=esm to Alan Wake's Steam launch options to use it)
  • Added -directaiming command line parameter that removes all mouse acceleration (enables also -rigidcamera automatically) 
  • Improved low level mouse reading routines to make the control cope better with low and variable frame rates. This also removes the reported jerkiness when -rigidcamera was enabled. You may need to re-adjust your mouse sensitivity in the menus! 
  • Removed auto-aim that was accidentally enabled in the previous build
  • Added a frame rate limiter to menus & videos to prevent cards running at 1000's of fps (reduces stress on the graphics cards)
  • Reduced CPU use when game doesn't have focus
  • Fixed "first run" on a 2nd PC overwriting saves & statistics downloaded from cloud
  • Fixed crashes when using alt-tab to change out of the game when the game is loading 
  • Fixed DEVICE_CREATE_ERROR for users who have "custom DPI" set in Windows.
  • Fixed one specific case of "File IO Failure" issue when unable to write to My Documents
  • Fixed camera to remember it's side preference (tab key) 
  • Fixed Cursor Key / Numpad assignment issues 
  • Fixed screen brightness back to original when changing process
  • Fixed some cases of "back" and Return to Game functionality so that it doesn't need 3 presses
