Remedy has released a hotfix patch for the PC version of Alan Wake. This hotfix fixes some crashes that occurred with Alt-Tab in SLI configurations, the saving of assigned keys so that both Numlock on/off states work and can be defined separately, as well as command line handling so that invalid input does not cause the game to enter unresponsive state. As always, the update will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client and you can view its changelog below.
In other news, Nvidia released the game’s SLI profile. This profile is available via the Update function of the Control Panel, so make sure to update it.
Here is the changelog of the hotfix patch:
• Fixed crashes with Alt-Tab in SLI configurations.
• Fixed saving of assigned keys so that both Numlock on/off states work and can be defined separately.
• Fixed command line handling so that invalid input does not cause the game to enter unresponsive (“No World Loaded”) state.
• Added better error messages to File IO operations to track down some problems.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
