The Forza Horizon 2 GamePack allows you to simplify and tweak your driving experience, while still being able to earn a high credit bonus from using Mods such as the Auto Clutch with Throttle Correction, which will automatically cut your throttle and engage your clutch before changing gears. Another great feature is using the Six-Axis Steering feature of any DualShock 3 or DualShock 4 controller for the first time ever in this game as it is an exclusive Xbox title, and SixAxis is exclusive to the PlayStation....until now! There's also support for Microsoft Speed Wheels with Customized Gear Shifter Buttons, and Adjustable Rumble Strength.

GamePack GCI Options
 
 
All GamePacks have Mods that can be tuned and customized to your preference. This scripting engine is what makes the CronusMAX so powerful and extremely popular with the gaming community. Gaming Mod configuration is now made more accessible than ever before with the new GCI (GamePack Configuration Interface). It pops up as soon as you program the GamePack to your Cronus (Video). Some Mods can be directly enabled/disabled here, and some are disabled in-game by default, but have several available options that can be set here and then enabled or activated while in-game.
 
 
 
 

 

GamePack Setup
 
 
If you have a CronusMAX PLUS, open the Cronus PRO software and go to Tools > Options > CMax Plus and enable "Mimic Controller Player LEDs" for the backlight LED features to work.

Class 1.1
Controller Selection
 
This Mod allows you to use non-Xbox One controllers with Forza Horizon 2. Unlike other Mods, if you are using a controller which does not support trigger rumble, in game feedback is not lost as it will automatically remap the trigger rumbles over to your specified controllers rumble motors.
 
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
When using controllers 3 & 4 Left/Right/Down on the D-Pad, it will press Left/Right/Down on the Right Stick so you can look left, right and back while driving.

WARNING
If the D-Pad down is used for gear shifting with controller 4, it will not look back when pressed.

Class 1.2
Enhanced Adjustable Deadzone
Controllers 3 & 4 Only
 
The Enhanced Adjustable Deadzone is a new feature added in the 1.4 version of the Forza Horizon 2 GamePack. This option is not required for controllers 1 & 2
 
You can now set the initial output of your wheels axis and the wheel output will be converted based on a mathematical equation and ratio.
 
For example, if the Deadzone is set at 20, an output from the wheel of 1 will equal 20 and an output of 100 will equal 100, or if the Deadzone is set at 45, an output from their wheel of 1 will equal 45 and an output of 100 will equal 100
 
This new complex equation gives the user complete control over their wheels Deadzone and unlike other wheel calculations, it doesn’t simply push the problematic Deadzone to the end of the scale, It actually removes it giving you unparalleled precision and control!
 
The default level is 20 and this usually eliminates the Deadzone. Anything below 20 reduces the elimination. Anything above 20 is like a negative Deadzone. The controller will always be outputting in one direction. It is unlikely anything above a value of 25 would be required, however we have allowed for a maximum level of 100 in case there are rare scenarios. Anything higher would usually make it impossible to drive in a straight line.
 
You should also go to the Advanced Controls Options within the game settings and set the steering axis settings as follows:
 
Controller 3 In-Game Settings: Steering Axis Deadzone - Inside: 0 & Outside: 90
Controller 4 In-Game Settings: Steering Axis Deadzone - Inside: 0 & Outside: 70 or 90 if you want 1:1 steering wheel position in cockpit view.

Class 2
Rumble Adjustment Strength
 
This Mod allows you to adjust the rumble strength being sent out by the Xbox One console.  This is especially important when using a Racing Wheel as the standard rumble output is barley detectable on them.  Now you will not lose any of the vital feedback from Forza 5 when racing with your wheel. This setting applies to controllers 2, 3 & 4.

Auto Clutch with Optional Throttle Correction
 
Want to earn those extra credits for using Manual with clutch but can't get the hang of pressing the clutch button during gear shifts? Not to worry, this Mod will automatically activate the clutch for you.       
              
But wait there's more! Usually, to get the perfect gear change you need to release the throttle during gear changes and apply it again as soon as the change is complete.  Not with the CronusMAX PLUS! Unlike other Mods, this one will also take control of the throttle during gear changes so you can hold it down without over revving your engine.
 
Quick Enable/Disable the Auto Clutch Mod. LED 3 is lit if enabled.

This is for the Microsoft Speed Wheel (Controller 4) only (Shift Up Button). Make sure you select different buttons for Up and Down.

Speed Wheel Menu Navigation
Controller #4 Only
 
Want to use your Microsoft Speed Wheel to play Forza 5 but find that menus are inaccessible due to the lack of shoulder buttons on the controller? CronusMAX PLUS has you covered. This Mod remaps the X and Y buttons to the Left and Right Bumpers which means you never have to swap controllers again to navigate the in game menus!
 
Enter or Exit Navigation Mode:
 
 
While Menu navigation mode is enabled, Auto Clutch is automatically disabled and LED 2 will be lit.
 
When in menu navigation mode, the X button is remapped to the left bumper and the Y button is remapped to the Right bumper button which enables you to navigate the in game menus.
 
 

 

 

Troubleshooting
 
 
If you find your GamePack isn't working correctly, the memory in the Cronus device where the settings are stored may have become corrupted. In this case, we recommend that you erase your memory slots using the Cronus Pro option in Tools > Device Cleanup > Erase Memory Slots. There will be an option to clear the memory slots in Cronus Pro. This step is not necessary, although recommended if you're not using the other slots.
 
 
If you're still having issues and want to check that your Cronus Device is functioning correctly with scripts, but you're not too sure how to test, we recommend you try out the easy to use Cronus Stress Test Script by Cronus Community senior staff member, Lex Lost.
