  • What is "Free camera mode"?

    I've seen Markus mention "Free camera mode" a number of times in the Alan Wake PC Update "Roadmap" thread. I'm just curious, what exactly is this mode going to be like? How will it work? Is it really going to give us the ability to openly explore Bright Falls? The post also states it needs a Xbox 360 controller, any reason why?

    I just read about it. Don't know, maybe a camera noclip feature? Sucks cause I don't have an xbox controller since I use a PC not an XBOX

      My guess is it's something like noclip too. I have a 360 controller, but I don't see why it's mandatory for this feature.

        I'm guessing it could be like the old IDF 2009 video: (1:17 onwards)



        During testing, there was a function to leave the camera in place whilst Alan ran around, but I'm sure there are more hidden camera controls in the engine.

                It'll require the controller as we've never had any mouse/kbd fly controls and implementing those would require too much effort for a "debug" feature that's really not essential to the game. We did this just because fans wanted it, but can't spend that much time on it...

                  How about the XBOX version, I would just love to be able to roam the environment, it's so beautiful

                    Is it possible to create a mod where camera is detached and player could just fly around?
