Connecting to an Xbox One

Using an Xbox One Controller

 
Using an Xbox One Controller
 
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 Wireless 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.
 
5
Ready to Use
 
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 controller but the CronusMAX LED displays 0, then you should follow this Xbox One Troubleshooting Guide.
 
WARNING
If the LED on the CronusMAX PLUS does not change from AU to a number then the authorization controller is not authenticating. 9/10 we find that this means the Micro-USB cable to the 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 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 or the USB socket on the authorization controller itself is loose. Check all connections and replace any parts if necessary.
