So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
To do:
  • Get screenshots of the anti-piracy stuff and the unused areas visible with the -freecamera option.
  • Find if -legaleyepatch was added.

Anti-Piracy Features

The eye patch

As of version 1.05, if the game detects that it was installed in a not quite legal form, a few minor aesthetic changes are made to the game in response: Alan Wake wears a pirate eyepatch for the entire game (Barry, on the other hand, wears two!) and the messages shown during loading screens are replaced with a message politely encouraging the player to buy the game if they like it. There has been a survey in 2012 on if there should be a command line to get this legally, such as "-legaleyepatch". It is not noted in patch notes if this was added or not.

Free Camera Mode

Patch version 1.04 added a "-freecamera" debug command-line function that replaces the camera side toggling when clicking in the right stick with toggling a free camera mode. This lets you move the camera around the entire map, which lets you see all sorts of leftovers in the playable maps, and even some crop circles!
