CM FIRMWARE V1.44 RELEASED

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News

It’s been a huge month for the CM team. As most of you are aware we decided to rebrand the website from CronusMAX to ControllerMAX which was documented in this press release – you can look forward to more products from us in 2014 🙂

As promised we continue to improve features and fix many bugs that are reported by our expanding community.

2014-02-24, FW Ver 1.44

  • Firmware generated with lastest AVR GCC compiler (ver 3.4.2.1002)
  • Fix and optimization of “Remote Control” feature
  • Universal Xbox One compatible controllers recognition (not VID:PID hard coded) Includes support such as new Xbox One Killer Instinct Fighsticks
  • Added Xbox One DIGITAL LT and RT signal parse (Usually analog triggers are dead – this converts to digital – common used in fightsticks)
  • Added function ‘get_battery’ (Great for warning LED via script i.e. controller LED flashing when battery is at 20%) Script Example

Gtuner Plugin Updates :

  • MaxAim 3.13
  • MaxRemapper 1.11

There are now several new settings to tweak controller performance in the latest Gtuner v2.17+

Tools > Options > Devices

Speed Up Settings:

These settings are made available for the end user to toggle on/off to try and improve performance or to troubleshoot any issues such as lag/disconnect.

Inframe Out: Check if there is more data to send to the Console within the current USB frame. This setting helps improve performance and reduce input lag.

Inframe In: Check if there is more data to receive from the Controller within the current USB frame. This setting helps improve performance and reduce input lag.

1ms Response: A response time of one millisecond is the fastest response time possible for USB devices. Disabling this option will make the device run at the original speed of the Console currently in use. This may help situations where there are disconnect issues or Player 2 i/o issues.

DS4 BT Boost: This setting sends multiple endpoint requests within the same USB frame. This setting improves the data acquiring from Dualshock 4 controllers over Bluetooth connection.

Rumble Over Bluetooth: 

Some Bluetooth dongles are not compatible with FULL SPEED rumble over Bluetooth. This feature requires high bandwidth which is usually not supported by old or cheap Bluetooth dongles. The work around is to select the option FLOW CONTROL, FLOW CONTROL+ or DISABLED.

As of Gtuner v2.17, this setting effects both Dualshock 3 and Dualshock 4 (previous versions only applied to DS3)

Remote Control Explained:

You can now switch between memory profiles by using your controller. Simply hit these two buttons:

Xbox 360: Back+Guide
Xbox One: View+Guide
PS3: Select+PS
PS4: Share+PS
Wii U Pro: Select+Home

CM v1.43 Firmware Released

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News

Some users have been reporting disconnecting issues when using a Wireless DualShock 4 Controller with Xbox 360 or PS3 (Does not effect PC or Wired)

Firmware V1.43 will hopefully help resolve those issues. We have also determined that some cheaper Bluetooth dongles simply don’t have enough juice to handle the extra load that DS4 Bluetooth utilizes, especially with the rumble features enabled.

The Bluetooth Compatibility Page has been updated with extra information regarding which Bluetooth dongles are suitable for DS4 and also the various settings that you should try.

You should first try with FULL SPEED and test to see if you have any disconnects (it’s usually up to 5 minutes that it will disconnect if there is a problem), then try FLOW CONTROL, FLOW CONTROL+ and then ultimately DISABLE.

2014-01-16, Ver 1.43

  • Bluetooth Stack – HCI: Re-inialization of TD when Bluetooth resets
  • USB Host: Proper DataOverRun error handling
  • USB Host: PDT packet toggle update and check
  • Bluetooth Rumble Flow Control option now available for DualShock 4
  • Bluetooth Rumble Disable option now available for DualShock 4
  • Some DualShock 4 Bluetooth protocol tweaks
  • Added Support for ASUS Bluetooth 4.0

CM v1.42 Firmware Released

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News

Firmware V1.42 will fix any random freezing, hanging, disconnecting and authentication issue while using controllers or XIM3 / XIM Edge

2014-01-01, Ver 1.42

  • USB Device: Disabled early checking and sending (Causing some random freezing)
  • USB Host: ATL+SOF interrupts only for Dualshock 4

Happy New Year Everyone 🙂

CronusMax Input Lag Test [Original Vs CronusMax]

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News

Since we added full Xbox One Support to the CronusMAX there have been a lot of comments on various websites regarding input lag.

Here is the Proof that there is no input lag

CronusMAX in the Press !

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News

We have been getting lot’s of press attention since our latest Xbox One updates, although I wish they wouldn’t call it a mod because it isn’t a mod it’s a plug and play addon device with no installation/soldering/chips/wires and no it does not invalidate your warranty. Other than that – awesome to get recognized 

If you see any more news articles please let us know.

Let us re-iterate that the MSRP of CronusMAX is $59.95 – do not pay more than that to anyone. We should also say that most of our retailers have stock and there is a good amount of stock in production too.
