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 🙂

CronusMAX PLUS v1.05 Firmware Update

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

It’s a busy time in our lab right now, we have yet another firmware update for you – this time for those with Xbox 360 consoles.

As you know, (or in case you didn’t know….), an Xbox 360 wired controller is required to authenticate the CronusMAX PLUS to your Xbox 360 Console. This is so it can be done without any illegally cracked security IC’s, and why Cronus has been on the market for so long without being taken down by Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo.

The problem and limitation has always been that only a select few 360 controllers were compatible with this authentication process, so it made it a bit of a lucky dip if your controller was compatible or not – either that or you’d have to buy a full priced MS original controller at $60+ and that was even a challenge due to so many clones on eBay these days.

Well, those days are now over. CronusMAX has succeeded where all the devices before us have failed. As of Firmware v1.05, pretty much every Xbox 360 wired controller will now authenticate!

We can’t say we guarantee all of them as the current compiled list has become quite large over the last couple of years and we don’t have all the controllers, however between all the staff, every single controller that we had that didn’t AU before now works flawlessly.

The majority of the ones that were fixed were brands such as Power A, Afterglow, PDP and some budget GameStop controllers. We didn’t have any of the non-AU Fightsticks on hand to test so we will rely on you guys to give feedback on as many 360 controllers as possible so we can update the compatible controllers list.

Examples of some controllers that did not authenticate before, or some models would work and some wouldn’t – but all now work flawlessly with the new CronusMAX PLUS v1.05 firmware:

(0E6F:0113) PDP AFTERGLOW AX.1
(0E6F:0213) PDP AFTERGLOW WITH SMART TRACK (MODEL PL-3702 v2.0)
(0E6F:021F) PDP ROCK CANDY
(0E6F:011F) PDP ROCK CANDY
(0E6F:0301) GAMESTOP WIRED BLACK CONTROLLER (These are super cheap only £10.97)
(0E6F:0147) PDP MARVEL WITH SMART TRACK
(24C6:530A) POWER A STAR WARS
(24C6:530A) POWER A PRO EX
(24C6:530A) POWER A PRO EX REALTREE WALMART EXCLUSIVE

Please check the Compatible Controller list here – if you see a Xbox 360 controller listed there that you can confirm authenticates, or if you have a controller that is not listed there and authenticates, or if you have a 360 controller that does NOT authenticate – please let us know by replying in this thread so we can either update the list or investigate your controller if it needs further attention – thank you.

There’s so many more cool things going on, more exciting updates coming very soon

To update simply open Cronus Pro and go to Tools > Firmware Update. This option is ONLY available to those who have devices with CronusMAX PLUS Firmware v1.00 and above.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 GamePack Released !

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

What many of our fans have been waiting for – The Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 GamePack exclusive to CronusMAX PLUS has been released to coincide with the PlayStation 4 open public beta release on August 23rd 2015, and Xbox One/Windows PC open public beta release on August 26th 2015. The game will be officially released on November 6th where you can expect for this GamePack to be updated even further.

There are many features that have been fine tuned over its predecessors, and also new features which make this the best Call of Duty GamePack yet.

You will also notice the new Class 0 which is enabled by default when you are using a non-DS4 controller (automatically detected by the GamePack) which is the PS4 Authentication Timeout System that also includes the new CronusMAX PLUS LED Notification feature.

Another great new feature that has been implemented especially for Xbox One Controller users is the new Xbox One GamePack Menu System:

Also, be sure to update to the latest manual using the Cronus Pro Manual Updater Plugin (as of today the latest version is 3.55).

For complete instructions and step by step details of all GamePack details please visit this page of the CronusMAX PLUS Online Manual: http://cronusmax.com/manual/#blackops3.htm

New CronusMAX PLUS GamePack Class & Mod Notifications

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

It is now easier than ever to navigate through the different GamePack Classes and Mods with your controller – especially if you have a CronusMAX PLUS as you can use the new Backlight LED Notification System.

However we have also added a new method for Xbox One controllers where the triggers will rumble – this is particularly great for those who have an older version of CronusMAX as there are no player LED’s on the controller. The rumble option is available on selected GamePacks.

PS4 Crossover Essentials GamePack Released!

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

The CronusMAX PLUS PS4 Crossover Essentials GamePack is the perfect addition for those using a non native controller on a PS4. It will give you authentication timeout reset options, the ability to remap the back/view/select buttons to press the touchpad and also allow you to control the touchpad movement with the Right Analog Stick.

Also included in this GamePack are incredibly useful and popular mods such as Rapid Fire, Burst Fire, Anti-Recoil and Auto Sprint. All the mods are customizable so you can set them up for whichever game you require, or if you don’t require them at all, they can all be disabled on the fly.

One favorite feature is the new CronusMAX PLUS LED Notification System for PS4 Authentication Timeout.

Here’s a complete 10 minute video demonstration of the GamePack in action:

Forza 5 Pro Edition GamePack v1.4 Update

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

The Forza 5: Pro Edition GamePack has been updated with a sensational new feature – Enhanced Deadzone Adjustment.

You can now set the initial output of your wheels axis and the wheel output will be converted based on a mathematical equation and ratio.

For example, if the Deadzone is set at 20, an output from the wheel of 1 will equal 20 and an output of 100 will equal 100, or if the Deadzone is set at 45, an output from their wheel of 1 will equal 45 and an output of 100 will equal 100

This new complex equation gives the user complete control over their wheels Deadzone and unlike other wheel calculations, doesn’t simply push the problematic Deadzone to the end of the scale, It actually removes it giving you unparalleled precision and control!

The new updated instructions can be found here: http://cronusmax.com/manual/manual.htm#forza_5.htm

Another fantastic feature from CronusMAX staffer, KittyDawn!
