The 1.03 update of Alan Wake has hit bringing along the Latin American Localisation support as well as several improvements and fixes.

<b>Alan Wake 1.03 release notes:</b>

• 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
• Thanks for your feedback! We are still working on improvements & fixes, please see our forum for up to date troubleshooting and update information: <a href="http://forum.alanwake.com/showthread.php?t=7759">http://forum.alanwake.com/showthread.php?t=7759</a>
