Talking sharks, huh? OK great, we have your attention!
It's important to know that setting up Zen with a PS5 is quite different than other consoles. There are currently three methods depending on the game you are playing. If you don't follow the steps for each method correctly, your controller WILL disconnect every few minutes.
1. PS4 SPECIALITY
Supports all PS4 games and most PS5 games released before August 2021. Requires a Third-Party PS4 Controller to act as a "license donor"; for example, the HORI MINI-PAD or NACON COMPACT. If you get an error like the one below saying that the controller is not supported, then you must use one of the Remote Play methods below. You can still play the PS4 version of the game.
2. ONLINE REMOTE PLAY (FREE)
Supports all PS4/PS5 games that are compatible with PS Remote Play. Requires a computer or mobile device to connect Zen to the online PS Remote Play system. This method does not require any special add-on devices as it works directly with the official Sony PS Remote Play apps for PC, Mac, Android, iPhone, and iPad (mobile devices may require a USB-C OTG Adapter). Some users may experience lag or disconnection issues based on the quality of the network and the ping rate between console and ISP (any speed above 20MB will be fine, but a ping of below 20ms is preferred). See Remote Play Limitations for further information.
3. LOCAL REMOTE PLAY (💰)
Supports all PS4/PS5 games that are compatible with PS Remote Play. Requires a local remote play client device like the Beloader Pro which connects to your modem ($10 off when purchased from the Cronus shop). This method eliminates almost all lag and disconnection issues that happens for some users when using the Online Remote Play method. See Remote Play Limitations for further information.
