Wired Controllers (PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3) - Connecting to an Xbox One

Using a USB Hub

 
Using a USB Hub
 
1
Set Output Protocol
 
 
Follow the instructions here to correctly connect your CronusMAX PLUS to a PC via the PC PROG port using the supplied Mini-USB Cable.
 
Load Cronus PRO and go to Tools > Options > Device
 
 
Set the Output Protocol to AUTOMATIC. (IMPORTANT - If not set to AUTOMATIC then the USB Hub will not work correctly).
 
These are also the recommended default Speed Up Settings for Wired Controllers. Rumble Over Bluetooth is disabled as it's not being used.
 
You can now close the Options window and disconnect your CronusMAX PLUS from your PC.
 
2
Remove any Xbox One Controller Batteries
 
 
Remove any batteries or charger pack from your Xbox One Controller (if it has them).
 

This is a very important step or the controllers will not authorize correctly.

 
3
Prepare the USB HUB
 
Using a Compatible USB Hub (USB 2.0 or lower is recommended) connect the controllers as follows:
 
  •  Using a full data Micro-USB cable, connect your Xbox One Controller to PORT 1 on the USB Hub.
  •  Connect your Wired Controller of choice into PORT 4 on the USB Hub. If it's a DualShock 4 Wireless Controller use a full data Micro-USB Cable.

TIP
Some USB Hubs prefer the Cross Over controller to be on Port 3, just make sure that when you power cycle the console that the CronusMAX PLUS completely shuts down (No LED) and doesn't sit in standby mode (Spinning Animation LED), otherwise on reboot the authorization won't work correctly. Note: To correctly shut down the console, usb hub and CronusMAX PLUS, power cycles must be done from the console, not the controller.

Connect the USB HUB to the CronusMAX PLUS
 
 
 
Now that your controllers are connected to the appropriate ports on the USB Hub, connect your USB Hub into the Input Port of the CronusMAX PLUS.
 
 
5
Connect the CronusMAX PLUS to your Xbox One
 
 
Connect the CronusMAX PLUS into one of your Xbox One USB ports via it's Output Port.
 
 
  
The CronusMAX PLUS LED Display will now show the Authentication 'AU' Animation.
 
  
If you get this error code you have not updated to the latest firmware (at least v1.21). You must do that before you proceed.
 
6
Ready To Use
 
  
After a couple of seconds the display on the CronusMAX LED will go from the Authentication 'AU' Animation to 0 (or a number if slot recall is enabled and a script was previously loaded) - indicating that the controllers are authorized and you're ready to play. At this point you can use your controller through the CronusMAX PLUS and also load any scripts or GamePacks. It's that simple! NOTE: If there is no response from your Crossover controller but the CronusMAX LED says 0, then you should follow this Xbox One Troubleshooting Guide.
 
NOTE
The Authentication controller will be disabled. It will not vibrate and none of it's controls will interefere with your Crossover experience. It can safely be left sitting idle on a surface as if it was turned off.

WARNING
If the LED on the CronusMAX PLUS does not change from AU to a number then the authorization controller is not authenticating. 99% of the time, this means either you didn't set the Output Protocol to AUTOMATIC in Step 1 of the instructions, or the Micro-USB cable to the controller is faulty or simply not compatible, you should try another one. Another issue that sometimes comes up is that the controller USB port has a loose data pin. It will charge fine, but won't transmit data. Also make sure the controller is powered on of course - that's a rookie mistake.

If you find that the controller disconnects at random times, and you are sure everything is setup correctly, then the USB cable is obviousley losing its connection between the authorization controller and the CronusMAX. This can be caused by a poor quality USB cable, the USB socket on the authorization controller itself is loose, or the USB hub you are using is poor quality. Check all connections and replace any parts if necessary.
