Cronus Zen by the Numbers
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
- 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
Unfortunately, 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 example PS REMOTE PLAY®.
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®, Nintendo Switch®, PlayStation 4®, PlayStation 3®, Xbox Series X/S®, Xbox One®, and Xbox 360®.
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 🙂
⛔ SCRIPT SELLERS
All GamePacks and Scripts are free. Period. The End. If you see a script for sale, it's almost guaranteed that it was either copied or stolen from free sources. You will find the seller unable to offer any kind of substantive support, or provide any custom changes to the GPC that actually work. There are literally dozens and dozens of community support channels where you can download every possible mod, with direct support from the actual developer. No money. No fuss. No scam. Remember, everything is free once you join the Cronus Community. There are no secret scripts, no secret features, no paid functionality, and more bizarrely no "hidden secrets that Cronus doesn't know about!!" Yes, we've seen them all 😂
