CRONUSMAX PLUS ADDS PS4 SIX-AXIS SUPPORT – WORLD FIRST!

It’s been a long time coming but finally, after many months of development and intense engineering, we are happy to announce that the CronusMAX PLUS is the world’s first cross-over controller adapter with full true PS4 CONTROLLER SIX-AXIS SUPPORT!

With other devices you can only read the accelerometer values on the input (and they are not even the correct values), this is no longer the case for the CronusMAX PLUS.

Games such as Blue Estate, The Last of US and Flower were either unplayable or required you to disconnect the CronusMAX for certain parts, are now completely playable!

For example you can now recharge your flashlight in the PS4 version of the Last of Us by shaking your controller, play the awesome rail shooter, Blue Estate with it’s full Gyro features and Rapid Fire, or use GTA SIX-AXIS features which are a lot more fun and easier to use than regular controls such as reloading a weapon, riding a motorbike, navigating a boat or piloting a helicopter.

Also, all Six Sensors (X,Y & Z Accelerometers and Pitch, Roll and Yaw Gyrometer sensors) input data can now be correctly and independently read and used for GPC scripting.

SIX-AXIS Explained

SIX-AXIS refers to the accelerometer/gyroscope in the PS4 controller.

The term “Six Degrees of Freedom” refers to the gyrometer’s X, Y, Z in-plane forces and the accelerometers X, Y, Z real-world plane forces.

The gyrometer works with “Pitch”, “Roll” and “Yaw” movements. The motions are illustrated below:

pry

Combined, these inputs allow for creating the amazing effects seen in PS4 games such as Drive Club, The Last of Us, Blue Estate, Flower and many, many others.

So how does this now work with CronusMAX PLUS? (Here comes the Technical stuff!)

The output report is now configured to pass correctly formatted SIX-AXIS data to the PS4 in such a way that the PS4 will recognize it.

The output feature data is sent with the correct data so the PS4 is calibrated to accept the data as it is originally intended.

The input report data is passed correctly to the CronusMAX’s VM and monitor. Previous versions didn’t pass gyro data and placed the accel data in the gyro location giving what we now know as inaccurate data.

Accel are the XYZ coordinates which point down with gravity, at rest on the desk the Z Axis accel shows 25, this represents the acceleration due to gravity, i.e 25 is 1G….the range is +/- 4G

Gyro represents angular velocity about the respective axes:

X – Pitch
Y – Roll
Z – Yaw

You can now use the following GPC commands correctly for input data:

PS4_ACCX
PS4_ACCY
PS4_ACCZ
PS4_GYROX
PS4_GYROY
PS4_GYROZ

Updating to Firmware v1.07 is easy, simply connect your CronusMAX PLUS to your PC using a mini-USB cable, open the Cronus Pro software and go to Tools > Firmware Update. That’s it!

We have so much more ongoing development in the works – stay tuned 🙂
