WELCOME TO CRONUS

We have provided separate guides for 32bit and 16bit GamePacks, GPC Scripting and Troubleshooting.

Cronus Zen is the world's best selling video game controller convertor which supports almost all officially licensed controllers (including Mouse and Keyboard) to work with the PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC, all with full access to our famous GPC Scripting Engine which allows you to run thousands of powerful MACROS and MODS.

Greetings and welcome to the Cronus Community!

Cronus Zen is currently in an active beta cycle, therefore the guide is also in the process of a major overhaul and rewrite, so if you find any mistakes, omissions, or have any suggestions, let me know, I'm always active in the Cronus Discord servers. Support for Google Chrome Translate is now available for the entire user guide! If you are using Chrome desktop, it should automatically ask if you want to translate, and if you use Chrome mobile, you can select 'Translate' from the menu.

🌎 Click here for Google Translate instructions - over 100 languages now supported!



We've also provided native language support channels in the Cronus Discord and Cronus Forums for our German, French, Italian and Spanish users (If you think you could run a support channel in a language not yet listed, let me know and I'll see what I can do 🙂)



Finally, please don't forget to visit the ReadMe.1st page before anything else, it's really important, cheers! 👍

Requirements

Here are the requirements for setting up and using the latest version of Cronus Zen, including full Community access.

  • Cronus Zen 👉 Official Cronus Shop 🛒
  • Windows 10/11 Desktop/Laptop
  • Firmware Update Tool 👉 Download
  • Zen Studio Software 👉 Download
  • Good quality internet connection (preferred 15Mbps+ wired)
  • Optional: Powered MK USB Switch 👉 Official Cronus Shop 🛒
  • Optional: USB-C to Micro-USB OTG Adapter or Cable

Windows 7

Unfortunatley, we are no longer able to officially support Windows 7/8. The firmware update tool should still work, but Zen Studio may have some limitations due to the lack of support in Windows 7 for new drivers and newer apps for PS REMOTE PLAY, XBOX, and STEAM.



If you still wish to give it a try, you will need this Windows 7 USB driver patch - click here to download

Remember, whatever controller (or Mouse and Keyboard) works with Zen, will also work with the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC.

Video Walkthrough

This video covers the entire Cronus Zen experience! It's a little long at 45 minutes, but includes a full unboxing, step-by-step updating the firmware, installing the Zen studio software, setting up controllers, programming GamePacks and testing scripts. It's chaptered so you can also skip sections quickly and easily.

Don't worry if Zen Studio looks a little different, it's been updated a few times since this was recorded 🙂

WARNING - DO NOT PAY FOR SCRIPTS! Script selling is strictly prohibited in the Cronus Community.



Do some of them work? Sure. But that doesn't mean you should pay for them - IT'S A SCAM! They are sold as 'professional' and 'secret methods' and 'not available anywhere else' and they show 'AIMBOT' with videos with impossible tracking (because they are fake) 🙄



Scripts are free and they will always be free. There are multiple channels to download these scripts, either the GPC Library or the dozens of GPC Script support channels on 3 x different Discord servers. Only suckers pay for them. Don't be a sucker - you have been warned 🤷‍♂️

OK, let's get you started. You should read the 'READ ME FIRST page......first. The hint is in the title, right? It'll take just a few minutes, but it will help make your introduction to the Cronus Zen, and to the global Cronus Community, a much more fun and enjoyable experience.
