Cronus PRO v1.20 Final Released

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

We are happy to announce, that after several months of BETA testing by the community, Cronus PRO v1.20, a massive update in terms of further bug fixes and improvements has finally been released. There is an insane amount of changes, particularly for the power user/script writer; read on for more details……

Cronus PRO v1.20 Changes:

  • GPC Interpreter Library completely re-written in C# – some changes/fixes made:
    • get_ptime now function correctly and gives you the press or release time of the button.
    • get_ptime is no longer limited to 4000 milliseconds, it’s now limited to 32767.
    • get_pvar and set_pvar are now functioning properly, they’re however not kept between runs in X-AIM (yet).
    • Fixed a bug causing TRACE_1 to be limited to a value of -100 to 100.
    • Fixed a bug causing “unmap” to not work properly in the X-AIM interpreter.
  • GPC Compiler Library completely re-written in C# with some additional functions, and lot’s of bugfixes:
    • Added support for ++ and — for variables (variable++ and variable–, not ++variable/–variable). Example:
    • Added support for +=, -=, *=, /= and %= for variable assignments (basically the same as doing: variable = variable < +,-,*,/ or %> ) Example:
    • Added support for 16-bit values in the data section (NOTE: This will issue a warning that any index coming after this will be +1 from it’s original state, that’s because it’s divided into 2 8-bit values before being added to the bytecode). This means that any value that is > 255 will be split into 2 values in the data section, all done automatically for you.
    • Added support for doing arithmetic operations for constants. This is useful when needing a positive and negative version of the same value, such as the case with anti-recoil mods where you may want to use a inverted version, with this you can thus define the anti recoil value as a positive value then make another shortcut to the negative version while not adding any additional bytecode size! You can now do something like:
    • Added support for pre-computing constant arithmetics, saving space in the final output (as constant math will be computed at compile time rather than at runtime). See above for the value of this, similar thing.
    • Fixed issues with user function returns.
    • Fixed issues with empty user functions.
    • Removed support for doing “- 1” for example when wanting it to be a negative value (this is considered a syntax error, there should be no space between the minus and the number!), you can still do things like “- CONSTANT” and “-CONSTANT” etc. (and the same for variables, for variables it’s translated to the same as if you did inv();
      This was done so that the compiler can be made more stable and having you think more about what you are doing.
    • Fixed multiple issues with compiled binary data (they would sometimes cause the Virtual Machine running the GPC code to crash – unloading the script).
    • Fixed an issue where doing something like this would result in a syntax error (the idx would become part of the return despite not belonging together):
    • Fixed a issue with how things like var[var] = !var[var]; was compiled which would result in incorrect opcode order.
    • Added a check for never ending while loops (constant trigger only) which are now treated as an error (you really shouldn’t do this as it’ll mess up the VM, it’ll get stuck in this and won’t output anything. Example:
    • Fixed a bug causing the unused function warning to always pop up regardless of if the function was used or not.
    • Added warnings about unused function arguments and combos.
    • Fixed some issues with if, else if and else causing incorrect jumps to happen which could potentially cause the VM to crash due to a never ending loop.
    • Fixed some issues with arrays (they should now be working correctly everywhere).
    • Added support for 2 new types of loops: “for” and “do while”, they’re defined like follows:
    • Added a bunch of keywords you can no longer use in your scripts; “const”, “byte”, “char”, “sizeof”, “do” and “for”, the first 4 are used in constructs i’m not ready to document/explain just yet, just don’t use these words as-is and you should be good (they can be used within variable names etc, just not as a specific name)
    • Fixed a bunch of issues with the bit operation functions, they weren’t being handled correctly – they are now 🙂
  • Added warnings about unused variables with the following cases:
    • unused – It’s not used anywhere at all (neither assigned a value nor read) – This will be printed even if you use it as a base for array indexes which may or may not be a good thing, let me know what you guys think about that.
    • assigned but not used – It’s assigned a value but is never used anywhere (it’s value is never checked/used anywhere).
    • used but not assigned – It’s never assigned a value and will therefor always return 0 as it’s value (this is the default value any variable is given) – NOTE: giving a variable a value when you define it or in the init section counts as assigning it a value, perhaps i should change that behavior and have it tell you when a variable is given a value at startup but never changes…?
  • Corrected the precedence rules, they’re as follows: (the higher the operator, the higher its value is treated in the compiler).
  • Entire HID Library completely re-written in C#.
  • Added an error line highlight to the code editor (it will now highlight the line that caused an error from the compiler) the default color is red but can be customized in the config (it supports some common names such as “red”, “blue”, “green” etc. and also ARGB annotations: #AARRGGBB (hex, similar to HTML except with the alpha aswell which is the opacity (FF for full color, 80 for semi-transparent).
  • Added support for jumping to the error when trying to compile a script that has an error in it.
  • Fixed an issue with Online Library causing titles to not be wrapped correctly.
  • Fixed an issue with the search function in Online Library – It will now search specifically for what you type in by default (unless using the new Advanced Search setting below):
  • Added “Advanced Search” to Online Library which lets you override the above fix (restore previous behavior where it does a broad search).
  • Added a “go to” command (Ctrl + G) which lets you jump to line x and column y (or just the line).
  • Fixed an issue where high contrast themes would make it very difficult (even impossible in most cases) to read what is/was displayed in Cronus PRO – it now looks the same regardless of your color settings, the window changes but nothing within Cronus PRO should now change.
  • Added some sanity checks before flashing a firmware/gamepack/GPC script to avoid further firmware corruption issues.
  • Added a option to enable/disable Accel/Gyro highlighting in the Device Monitor.
  • Fixed an issue where a corrupt X-AIM.cfg could potentially crash Cronus PRO (it is now logged and ignored – loading defaults instead).
  • Added a separate compiler instance for X-AIM and CM+ use (as they don’t support the same things, the CM+ has additional opcodes/functions not supported by X-AIM).
  • Added a visual indicator as to how many {, [ and ( you have compared to }, ] and ) (currently it’s just “OK” or “Bad” with details when you hover over it).
  • Fixed an issue where disconnecting the monitor then clicking a mouse button would make X-AIM exit capture mode.
  • Added support for downgrading to the previous firmware (Supports Standard, WE and TE modes).

  • Fixed a crash when loading some X-AIM layouts with leftover data from a previous script which was bigger then the current/latest script.
  • Improved some error handling under the hood (will provide more detailed information on certain errors).
  • Fixed some encoding errors in the Online Library – Only shown somewhat recently when someone posted a script with Chinese characters which didn’t display correctly.
  • Fixed a bug causing Visual Scripting to not load nor give a error message when IE 9 or older was installed on a system – You must have IE 10 or above installed for Visual Scripting to work – this means that this feature is NOT available to Vista users.
  • Updated info text for “Rumble Over Bluetooth” to better reflect that this setting is for Playstation and Wii only.
  • Changed Target CPU to AnyCPU rather then x86, increasing performance on 64-bit systems.

New Battlefield 1 GamePack goes Gold!

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

After a few weeks in BETA, we are proud to announce that the first first release from our new GamePack Development Team has finally gone gold!

The all new Battlefield 1 GamePack for CronusMAX PLUS has been redesigned from the ground up by GPC veteran and CronusMAX new staff member x22DOT, who is an expert in everything FPS.

We’re especially excited for you to try out the brand new Anti-Recoil Control System which works unlike any Anti-Recoil code we’ve ever had before in any of our packs. It no longer relies on the old Anti-Recoil method of ‘static’ pulldown. It now knows when to stop in every direction (Y and X Axis) to prevent unwanted compensation when aiming up and aiming down!

There are now more In Game layouts and controls than ever before, so now Aim Assist is more accurate than ever. We’ve also included mouse settings for that extra edge – a feature that has never been done before. This pack is crammed with firsts!

The new Auto Spot code is absolutely fantastic, as well as many other popular mods such as Rapid Fire, Quick Scope, Sniper Breath, Hair Triggers and Auto Sprint.

User Guide Online Now: http://cronusmax.com/manual/battlefield_1.htm

A very special thanks to x22DOT for spending hours and hours of gameplay to deliver an unbeatable set of Mods for the CronusMAX Community. We look forward to seeing what he comes up with next!

If you find any bugs or have any suggestions for this GamePack, or simply wish to give any feedback or say thanks to x22DOT for a great job, we invite you to post in the Battlefield 1 Support Topic. (Important Note: if reporting a bug, be as detailed as possible – include all of your settings, including console version, controller version , in game settings, gamepack settings, exactley what causes the bug so we can duplicate. Simply posting “this doesn’t work” is no help to anyone) .

Introducing Our New GamePack Team

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

Cronus PRO v1.20 BETA 10

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and great time over the holidays. It may have seemed a little quiet at CronusMAX HQ but there’s been quite a lot of development work going on behind the scenes in preparation for the new year. We hope to share lot’s of goodies with you over the coming months!

Today, we’re releasing a new version of the Cronus PRO BETA which has had many updates and fixes. We feel this is very close now to a release candidate so if you are running v1.12 we recommend you give this version a go.

This new version is also rid of the C++ 2010/2015 dependency (we no longer need C++) which, as a result should lead to less issues for people running Cronus PRO on a new PC (some of you may have had problems starting Cronus PRO without manually installing the C++ 2015 Redistributable x86 package). This is no longer going to be an issue.

While we re-wrote the compiler we also added several new features to it, mainly to make it easier for those familiar with programming in other languages such as C, C++, C# etc. to have things they’re used to having such as “variable++” which is the equivalent of doing “variable = variable + 1”. We find ourselves wanting this all the time, so we’ve implemented it 🙂

However as always with a beta, you may find bugs, so we will be relying on you to report any issues to us in this dedicated forum.

Users who have had issues after upgrading to Firmware v1.23 (Device Disconnecting, Stuck in Programming Mode etc) – Use this Beta to downgrade to v1.22 then upgrade to v1.23 again and that should fix the problem.

Changes since v1.20 Beta 9

  • Fixed some issues with arrays (they should now be working correctly everywhere)
  • Added support for 2 new types of loops: “for” and “do while”, they’re defined like follows:

  • Added a bunch of keywords you can no longer use in your scripts; “const”, “byte”, “char”, “sizeof”, “do” and “for”, the first 4 are used in constructs i’m not ready to document/explain just yet, just don’t use these words as-is and you should be good (they can be used within variable names etc, just not as a specific name)
  • Fixed a bunch of issues with the bit operation functions, they weren’t being handled correctly, they are now 🙂
  • Corrected the precedence rules, they’re as follows: (the higher the operator, the higher it’s value is treated in the compiler)
    • variables, constants, function calls and anything within ( )’s (this is how you clarify what you want to the compiler, if you don’t these rules apply)
    • !, ++, —
    • *, /, %
    • +, –
    • <, <=, >, >=
    • ==, !=
    • &&
    • ^^
    • ||
    • =, +=, -=, *=, %=, /=
