Signs #5 – As you continue past the big gazebo along the path you will see a tree with a hole in it. Enemies will emerge from this so when there’s a break in them read the sign for the Great Old One.

    This is really a nice guide. If you want to know something about troubleshooting bugs on this game then have a look on this guide : Alan Wake All PC ISSues and Fixes / Troubleshooting Guide + techarena. Search this on google.

    Alright, where are the nightmare manuscripts? I spent my weekend doing productive stuff instead of gathering them on my own so I could use the guide...
