    How to connect CronusMAX PLUS to XIM APEX and PS4

    WARNING


    Connecting to a XIM APEX is not officially supported by Cronus. These are the known methods to get it working.



    First make sure you have a CRONUSMAX PLUS (no previous versions will work) and make sure you are using the latest XIM APEX firmware.

    The firmware must be CronusMAX PLUS v1.24 - anything else and it will not work with the XIM APEX correctly.

    Only DualShock 4 v1 (CUH-ZCT1) is supported with this method. DS4v2 works just fine with Cronus on its own, but it does not work and will not work when trying to use a XIM Apex with a Cronus. No matter what anyone says, this is not a problem with our side, and as the XIM guys have refused to work with us to help their customers, there won't be any updates for it and we will be concentrating on the development of the next generation of Cronus, coming next year.


    IMPORTANT: In Cronus PRO, the output protocol must be set to PS4 (NOT Automatic).


    IMPORTANT: For now you must use DS4 V1 controller ( DS4 V2 doesn't work right now).

    PS4
    Note: For PS4 Pro also follow these steps - https://cronusmax.com/forums/showthr...LOW-THIS-GUIDE
    1. Plug DS4 V1 wired controller (USB cable), KB & Mouse into XIM APEX via XIM APEX hub
    2. Plug CM+ into PS4
    3. CM+ will show AU
    4. Plug XIM APEX into the CM+
    5. Wait for CM+ LED to show 0


    This method is written by Excalibur and is not affiliated with any official Cronus support.

    The scripts are for CronusMAX Plus, but designed for/tested on XIM4, they should function exactly the same with a XIM Apex.

    More so, any script for the games you wish to play should function, they might not be optimized for M&KB, but should work... likewise scripts for PS4 generally work on XB1 aswell and vice versa, there are cases where they don't (if the game uses the Touchpad on PS4 for example)

    Please read replies from "ObsIV" from below link. ( posts are old but still valid)
    https://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=44529.0

    Further more , it might be a better idea to write on Xim.tech forums , IT'S NOT AN ISSUE WITH " CRONUSMAX" , it's an issue with *** mouse ***

    Yes everything all the settings are correct. I changed my polling rate on my mouse to 1000hz so my aim feels almost perfect now but I am still constantly getting those purple flashing lights. I'm ignoring them for now.

    If you're talking about DS4v2 those are supported with the CronusMAX but for some reason doesn't like working with Xim Apex. We will investigate why they don't work as soon as there's time (currently involved in a bunch of new projects). It really depends if the XIM guys will work with us. if they don't we won't be wasting our time.

    I don't have a XIM Apex personally but should be the exact same instructions as XIM4 - did you try it?

    XBOX ONE
    1. Plug Xbox One wired controller (USB cable), KB & Mouse into XIM
    2. Plug CM+ into Xbox One
    3. CM+ will show AU
    4. Plug XIM into the CM+
    5. Wait for CM+ LED to show 0


    if it doesn't work I will pass the information on to the dev team, however i do know they're heavily involved in a couple of brand new exciting projects so can't be sure how long it would take.

    Hello everyone. I spent all night trying to get the CM to work with the XIM Apex only to find that what I thought was a DS4 V1, was not. Found one of my DS4 V1s this morning and everything is up and running. Thanks Excalibur and everyone else who helped.

    do you mean the mouse or the xim apex polling rate?

    Make sure you dont have the XIM plugged into the CM at the beginning.

    Plug CM+ into Xbox One
    CM+ will show AU
    Then Plug XIM into the CM+

    If you can't get the CM to flash A/U on its own, you may have other issues.
    I have an Xbox One and will try later today if you still need help.
