How many controllers can I use?

You can use one controller per CronusMAX at any one time. The CronusMAX takes on the “identity” of a controller and converts its signals digitally to the controller you wish to use. For example if you have an Xbox One, the CronusMAX will take on the identity of your Xbox One controller through the process of “Authentication”. The Security ID of that Xbox One controller is then stored inside the CronusMAX so that the Xbox One thinks that the CronusMAX is in fact the Xbox One Controller. You can then connect any controller you wish to the CronusMAX and it will convert a controllers signals through the CronusMAX to the console. This allows you to use almost any controller on any console. Note: The controller that is used for “Authentication” cannot be used while the CronusMAX is in use as it has borrowed the security ID of that controller. A console only allows one unique security ID to be used at any one time.

What would I need a USB Bluetooth adapter for?

A USB bluetooth adapter is required if you wish to use a PS4, PS3 or Wii U Pro controller in wireless mode (any console). We recommend for optimal results you use a Bluetooth 4.0 standard however a 2.0+ EDR standard will work just fine. A bluetooth adapter is not required if you wish to use Xbox controllers.

Can I use Steering Wheels with a CronusMAX?

The short answer is yes but requires a more detailed explanation. Although some wheels work out of the box, most Racing Wheels such as Logitech G27 and most Fanatec brands take a lot more setting up due how advanced they are. In most cases they also require a Windows PC to be connected to the CronusMAX along with a special plugin (X-AIM, or MAX Input) and dedicated scripts that have been pre-made by our team of specialists.

Our support community has a large user base of racing wheels owners who all give each other support and advice on how to optimized their gaming rigs. There are also many videos and guides to help you get the best our of your CronusMAX and Racing Wheel enjoyment. Click here for more detailed information.

Can I use a headset and mic with CronusMAX?

Due to how the CronusMAX communicates with PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 controllers, you will not be able to use a chatpad or any wired headsets that plug into the controller itself. However, any headset that can connect directly to the console either wired or wireless should fine work as long as it does not plug into the CronusMAX, or into a controller that is being utilized by the CronusMAX at that current time.
