So what’s the PS4 Wheel Edition?

PS4 Wheel Edition

The all new PS4 Wheel Edition is a brand new system for Logitech G25 and G27 racing wheels on the PS4 console using the CronusMAX PLUS.

The wheel is now detected by the game as an actual wheel and not a gamepad (specifically a Logitech G29 Wheel), giving tight, smooth, precise control and for the first time ever…..FULL FORCE FEEDBACK SUPPORT! Also includes full support for Gas, Brake and Clutch pedals and 6 Speed Shifter.

The Force Feedback feature is absolutely stunning. Feel your tires on every turn and type of terrain, sense under and oversteer drifting and more. With the PS4 Wheel Edition, you are also no longer required to have your computer connected to the console at all times!

You will never want to race with a regular controller again.

Recommended PS4 Games:

  • Project CARS
  • Drive Club
  • F1 2015
  • Dirt Rally
  • WRC 5: FIA World Rally Championship

What about the Xbox One Elite Controller Paddle Support?

Xbox One Elite Controller Support inc Paddle Scripting

This is another much requested feature from our community. Normally you would have to use the Xbox One console, or the Xbox One App from the Windows Store to setup the paddles on your Elite controller. Not any more! You can now map your paddles using our own GPC scripting engine straight out of the box without the need to use any other tools or complicated setups.

Not only can you map your paddles to any buttons, triggers or analog sticks, but you can also map them to combos, macros or mods – the possibilities are endless!

CRONUSMAX PLUS ADDS PS4 SIX-AXIS SUPPORT – WORLD FIRST!

Written by News on . Posted in

ps4axisnew4

It’s been a long time coming but finally, after many months of development and intense engineering, we are happy to announce that the CronusMAX PLUS is the world’s first cross-over controller adapter with full true PS4 CONTROLLER SIX-AXIS SUPPORT!

With other devices you can only read the accelerometer values on the input (and they are not even the correct values), this is no longer the case for the CronusMAX PLUS.

Games such as Blue Estate, The Last of US and Flower were either unplayable or required you to disconnect the CronusMAX for certain parts, are now completely playable!

For example you can now recharge your flashlight in the PS4 version of the Last of Us by shaking your controller, play the awesome rail shooter, Blue Estate with it’s full Gyro features and Rapid Fire, or use GTA SIX-AXIS features which are a lot more fun and easier to use than regular controls such as reloading a weapon, riding a motorbike, navigating a boat or piloting a helicopter.

Also, all Six Sensors (X,Y & Z Accelerometers and Pitch, Roll and Yaw Gyrometer sensors) input data can now be correctly and independently read and used for GPC scripting.

SIX-AXIS Explained

SIX-AXIS refers to the accelerometer/gyroscope in the PS4 controller.

The term “Six Degrees of Freedom” refers to the gyrometer’s X, Y, Z in-plane forces and the accelerometers X, Y, Z real-world plane forces.

The gyrometer works with “Pitch”, “Roll” and “Yaw” movements. The motions are illustrated below:

pry

Combined, these inputs allow for creating the amazing effects seen in PS4 games such as Drive Club, The Last of Us, Blue Estate, Flower and many, many others.

So how does this now work with CronusMAX PLUS? (Here comes the Technical stuff!)

The output report is now configured to pass correctly formatted SIX-AXIS data to the PS4 in such a way that the PS4 will recognize it.

The output feature data is sent with the correct data so the PS4 is calibrated to accept the data as it is originally intended.

The input report data is passed correctly to the CronusMAX’s VM and monitor. Previous versions didn’t pass gyro data and placed the accel data in the gyro location giving what we now know as inaccurate data.

Accel are the XYZ coordinates which point down with gravity, at rest on the desk the Z Axis accel shows 25, this represents the acceleration due to gravity, i.e 25 is 1G….the range is +/- 4G

Gyro represents angular velocity about the respective axes:

X – Pitch
Y – Roll
Z – Yaw

You can now use the following GPC commands correctly for input data:

PS4_ACCX
PS4_ACCY
PS4_ACCZ
PS4_GYROX
PS4_GYROY
PS4_GYROZ

Updating to Firmware v1.07 is easy, simply connect your CronusMAX PLUS to your PC using a mini-USB cable, open the Cronus Pro software and go to Tools > Firmware Update. That’s it!

We have so much more ongoing development in the works – stay tuned 🙂

CronusMAX PLUS v1.05 Firmware Update

Written by News on . Posted in

It’s a busy time in our lab right now, we have yet another firmware update for you – this time for those with Xbox 360 consoles.

As you know, (or in case you didn’t know….), an Xbox 360 wired controller is required to authenticate the CronusMAX PLUS to your Xbox 360 Console. This is so it can be done without any illegally cracked security IC’s, and why Cronus has been on the market for so long without being taken down by Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo.

The problem and limitation has always been that only a select few 360 controllers were compatible with this authentication process, so it made it a bit of a lucky dip if your controller was compatible or not – either that or you’d have to buy a full priced MS original controller at $60+ and that was even a challenge due to so many clones on eBay these days.

Well, those days are now over. CronusMAX has succeeded where all the devices before us have failed. As of Firmware v1.05, pretty much every Xbox 360 wired controller will now authenticate!

We can’t say we guarantee all of them as the current compiled list has become quite large over the last couple of years and we don’t have all the controllers, however between all the staff, every single controller that we had that didn’t AU before now works flawlessly.

The majority of the ones that were fixed were brands such as Power A, Afterglow, PDP and some budget GameStop controllers. We didn’t have any of the non-AU Fightsticks on hand to test so we will rely on you guys to give feedback on as many 360 controllers as possible so we can update the compatible controllers list.

Examples of some controllers that did not authenticate before, or some models would work and some wouldn’t – but all now work flawlessly with the new CronusMAX PLUS v1.05 firmware:

(0E6F:0113) PDP AFTERGLOW AX.1
(0E6F:0213) PDP AFTERGLOW WITH SMART TRACK (MODEL PL-3702 v2.0)
(0E6F:021F) PDP ROCK CANDY
(0E6F:011F) PDP ROCK CANDY
(0E6F:0301) GAMESTOP WIRED BLACK CONTROLLER (These are super cheap only £10.97)
(0E6F:0147) PDP MARVEL WITH SMART TRACK
(24C6:530A) POWER A STAR WARS

CronusMAX PLUS v1.05 Firmware Update

Written by News on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

It’s a busy time in our lab right now, we have yet another firmware update for you – this time for those with Xbox 360 consoles.

As you know, (or in case you didn’t know….), an Xbox 360 wired controller is required to authenticate the CronusMAX PLUS to your Xbox 360 Console. This is so it can be done without any illegally cracked security IC’s, and why Cronus has been on the market for so long without being taken down by Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo.

The problem and limitation has always been that only a select few 360 controllers were compatible with this authentication process, so it made it a bit of a lucky dip if your controller was compatible or not – either that or you’d have to buy a full priced MS original controller at $60+ and that was even a challenge due to so many clones on eBay these days.

Well, those days are now over. CronusMAX has succeeded where all the devices before us have failed. As of Firmware v1.05, pretty much every Xbox 360 wired controller will now authenticate!

We can’t say we guarantee all of them as the current compiled list has become quite large over the last couple of years and we don’t have all the controllers, however between all the staff, every single controller that we had that didn’t AU before now works flawlessly.

The majority of the ones that were fixed were brands such as Power A, Afterglow, PDP and some budget GameStop controllers. We didn’t have any of the non-AU Fightsticks on hand to test so we will rely on you guys to give feedback on as many 360 controllers as possible so we can update the compatible controllers list.

Examples of some controllers that did not authenticate before, or some models would work and some wouldn’t – but all now work flawlessly with the new CronusMAX PLUS v1.05 firmware:

(0E6F:0113) PDP AFTERGLOW AX.1
(0E6F:0213) PDP AFTERGLOW WITH SMART TRACK (MODEL PL-3702 v2.0)
(0E6F:021F) PDP ROCK CANDY
(0E6F:011F) PDP ROCK CANDY
(0E6F:0301) GAMESTOP WIRED BLACK CONTROLLER (These are super cheap only £10.97)
(0E6F:0147) PDP MARVEL WITH SMART TRACK
(24C6:530A) POWER A STAR WARS
