Developer Diary Pt 1 – Xbox One Wireless Controller on PS4 – World First!

Written by Charlie on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

This is the first of a special Developer Diary series of videos that will give an insight into some of the new and exciting features being developed here at Collective Minds, the parent company of the world famous CronusMAX Plus and Strike Pack products.

We’re excited to finally reveal for the first time ever, full wireless capability of all versions of Xbox One controllers – including original, 3.5mm headset, Elite and the new Bluetooth models – all with no lag and cross platform capability. Look for this groundbreaking technology in our new range of upcoming products, which will be announced in the near future.

Stay tuned for more Developer Diary videos where we’ll be revealing many more advances from our R&D department.


Cross Over no longer working on Xbox One after update?

Written by Charlie on . Posted in CronusMAX News, News

Yesterday’s 6.2.12998.0 Xbox One system update by Microsoft introduced many updates and fixes including and undocumented fix of reducing issues people were having with wireless controller connections.

Unfortunately this inadvertently disabled the authentication from working with the CronusMAX, but don’t worry we already discovered this issue during the beta (preview program) phase of the update and released the fix to our support forums and updated the CronusMAX Manual last week as a preemptive strike. As many don’t seem to like to read manuals these days we’re getting a lot of worried folks calling and emailing so we figured a news post may help out too 🙂

This system update now gives the wireless protocols priority over a wired USB connection. So if you try to authenticate with an Xbox One controller while the batteries are left in (it is still powered when you unplug it from the CronusMAX) it will reconnect over wireless and prevent the CronusMAX from operating.

So, to prevent this from happening, you simply need to remove any batteries from your Xbox One controller before authenticating. That’s it.

Easy 🙂

  • The CronusMAX PLUS is the third generation in the range that surpasses all of it's predecessors in terms of design and quality, making it more reliable and electronically sound than ever before. 

    The CronusMAX PLUS has been engineered to VALOR standards which are the highest electronic design specifications in the industry.  Everything is scrutinized including controlled differential, controlled impedance,  differential arrangement of resistors, shunt term thickness and routing of the VCC and GND traces to maximize current flow and minimize signal loss and interference (not to mention there must be separate planes for BOTH GND and VCC - we've seen many faulty PCB layouts where they only have one or two GND planes and no dedicated VCC plane - this is a massive fault in design), placement of the caps on the USB lines, the amount of vias including placement, spacing and thickness, and last but not least critical by-pass caps that should match the data-sheet of each IC. All of these issues have to be considered and are absolutely crucial when designing a PCB. If none of these are taken into account then the design is flawed and will fail any VALOR test. In short, If it passes VALOR, it means it's perfect. CronusMAX (V2) passed every VALOR test.

    Many problems were solved with the 2014 (V2) CronusMAX hardware design and the difference in performance compared to its predecessors far exceeded our expectations. Heat dissipation was drastically lowered and the amount of current drawn from a controller was dramatically decreased. We are confident that any competitor products that show even a remote similarity to the old predecessors line of products would show similar numbers to the non-VALOR figures in the results below.

    The USB Input socket has also been corrected (previous models had the socket inverted so that your USB devices were being plugged in upside down), and the outer bracket was also reinforced to protect against any accidental damage (think of a child tripping over a wired controller cable whilst connected to the CronusMAX, the design of its predecessors could sometimes cause the socket to break loose giving an E1 error - that issue has now been resolved with a much stronger bond between USB socket and PCB).

    The plastic shell was completely redesigned using higher quality production molding and techniques so that it was made not only mechanically correct for PS4 operation, but also more aesthetically pleasing and far more durable against everyday wear and tear.
