    Lightbulb Headset ,2 controllers, Xbox One or PS4 and CronusMax - It works.

    >>>FOR THE LATEST METHOD CLICK HERE<<<

    >>>FOR PS4 METHOD CLICK HERE<<<

    I have successfully used an xbox chat headset whilst using KB/M and the cronusmax.

    What you need is two controllers.

    I have only tested using usb cables so take the battery packs out.

    Plug an Xbox chat headset into a controller. Plug this controller into the back USB port on the Xbox One.

    Plug the other controller into the ContollerMax as usual - connect to PC using the pc prog port. Do not plug a headset into this one.

    Test that both controllers can navigate around the xbox interface.

    Now for the sneaky part.

    Using the controller with the headset go to your user icon in the top right of the screen (next to the globe).

    Select the Icon and Add guest. You will now be "Gamertag"(1)

    Join the chat / party session using the controller with the headset.

    You will now be able to hear people through the headset and be able to chat.

    To play a game (eg Bf4) use the other controller (the one with CronusMAX) to start the game. When BF4 starts, you have an option to switch player using the Y Key. do this and then you will be controlling the game using CronusMAX and chatting using the headset.

    Its a bit of an effort but you will do this once per session and you are set. Takes about 20 seconds once you get the sequence right.

    That's AWESOME. I mean, I don't play xb1, nor do I like chatting, but that's a really good way to get what you need done. lol

    More simple solution:

    First turn on your Xbox one without the CronusMax Plugged in

    Turn on a Wireless controller, Sign In with it, Than plug in the CronusMax and with a second controller Verify it, plug in your Input controller of choice and the First wireless controller you turned on you should be able to use for chat.

    After that I would recommend using a back USB port for the controller to stay on otherwise your'll have to turn it on every 10-15mins.

    I don't have a second controller yet to check this out for myself. Is there really a need to sign in as a guest? Is that the only way to keep that second controller (with the mic) working for chat?

    Thanks!

    Just tried it - and yes - you dont need a guest login. You still need 2 controllers though.

    Just make sure the xbox one sees that you have both controllers. Join the party with the controller with the mic then start the game. Switch controllers when in game to the one with CronusMAX.

    Very nice read. I am glad people are adapting to what is unavailable at this time...
    Although, i use my XBOX One Kinect as a mic in front of me when I am playing.. and people still hear me fine in game on my team in BF4. I mean theres always ways around it... just if you are really dedicated to make shit work.
    Adapt and overcome people! :rolleyes2:

    Question.

    Can I use 1 xbox one controller, connect it to the cronusmax for the authenticating part, disconnect it, and then use it as the controller for the headset?

    Or will I need 2 xbox one controllers and the controller I will be using with the converter, to do this method?

    i've never used this stuff before, i'm just starting out.
    i just got the device and setting it up now.

    so given that's been said above.

    i can use my keyboard and mouse on my P.C using Cronus Pro ,maxaim and remapper for the XBOX ONE.

    i can then use one wired xbox one controller plugged in the back of the xbox via usb , and Connect the chat adapter and my XO FOUR turtle breach headset.
    and then use other wired xbox one controller connected through the cronusmax to the side usb port and connected to the p.c.

    when I've Done that. make sure both controllers can work in the xbox one interface(i don't need to sign in as guest). i can then Join A Party and start up a game.
    using the controller with the headset. and then at some point, change the controller to the one connected to the crunusmax.

    and only then, i can play in a party with chat and use keyboard and mouse. and hopefully have in-game sound ?

    i know a added other things in there like the game sound through the headsets. but am i on the right track?

    if so , what point do i need to change the controller , and how to do that , for it all to still work?

    i still need to buy a 2nd controller to test this, but i want to make sure i'm gonna do it right.

    any input will be helpful.

    thanks

    Thanks for sharing this, I have been using Cronusmax for a day now and found this limitation set in place by my PS4. I noticed you can use multiple guest accounts much like the XB1. In theory this should work, not to mention it`d be good to get a second controller anyway. Many thanks.

    You have to use a second XB1 controller and an XB1 headset. The CM does not support voice.

    I hope they do as well. I hate wired headsets. Personally, when I'm playing on the One, I'm usually in party chat on the 360 so I can use my wireless headset.

    Let's hope so. Although, I wouldn't spend £200 on a headset, especially a turtlebeach. I've had a few in the past and found they are not worth the price.

    If a headset connects directly to the console, then you can use it while using the CM. I currently use a Microsoft wireless headset to chat while using the CM on the 360.
