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

Without a USB Hub

 
Without 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 XB1.
 
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
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.
 
3
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.

 
4
Connect your Xbox One Controller to the CronusMAX PLUS
 
 
Connect your Xbox One Controller into the Input Port of the CronusMAX PLUS using a full data Micro-USB Cable.
 
  
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). If the Display does not change from showing AU, try a different Micro-USB Cable between the CronusMAX PLUS and Xbox One Controller, and/or physically power cycle your Xbox One.
 
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 we find that this means the USB cable to the authorization controller is faulty or not full data 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 authentication controller is powered on of course - that's a rookie mistake.

5
Disconnect your Xbox One controller from the CronusMAX PLUS
 
   Once the display on the CronusMAX PLUS shows a number, disconnect your Xbox One controller from the CronusMAX PLUS.
 
  
The CronusMAX PLUS LED Display will now show the spinning Standby animation.
 
6
Connect your Crossover Controller to the CronusMAX PLUS
 
 
Connect your Wired Controller of choice into the Input Port of the CronusMAX PLUS. If it's a wireless PS4 Controller use a full data Micro-USB Cable.
 
7
Ready to Use
 
  
After a couple of seconds the display on the CronusMAX LED will go from the spinning Standby 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 displays 0, then you should follow this Xbox One Troubleshooting Guide.
 
WARNING
If you are using an Xbox One or DualShock 4 Controller with a Micro USB cable and the LED on the CronusMAX PLUS changes back to AU then the Micro USB Cable is probably faulty or not compatible. Try another and make sure it is full data and not just a charging cable.
