Here is the list of all console commands in Alan Wake. Console commands are only available on PC.

-w screen width (e.g. -w1280)

-h screen height (e.g. -h720)

-window force windowed

-novsync disables v-sync

-showfps shows a frame rate counter on screen

-forcesurround forces 5.1 speaker mode

-forcestereo forces stereo (2 channel) speaker mode

-nosound disables sound

-cleancloud deletes your save games and settings for Alan Wake from Steam Cloud

-noblur disables the in-game vector blur

-rigidcamera enables a "more stiff" mouse control/camera mode with camera centered behind Wake.

-directaiming enables a 1:1 mouse control mode (obsolete, recommend using menu option instead)

-sensscale (e.g. -sensscale=0.2) changes the mouse sensitivity scale slider in-game. (Useful for some high DPI mice that feel way too sensitive even with the in-game menu set to low.)

-freecamera allows toggling between normal and a gamepad controlled free camera by pressing right thumb stick (overrides the camera side toggling).

-locale=xx forces a selected locale. This should not be needed as you can change it from the Game Properties in Steam. Note that you have to have the locale files downloaded from Steam and that happens only when you choose the language you want to play in from Steam.
