Absolutely! Connect a DualSense® controller to A1 and a DUALSHOCK4® to A3.
If you don't have access to a DualSense® controller, you can also try enabling PS Remote Play then connect any controller connected to A3. This feature emulates a DUALSHOCK4® no matter which controller you are using.
This method can be patched at any time, so please let us know at cronus.support if it's no longer working for you.
Note: The DUALSHOCK4® v2 (CUH-ZCT2) offers better stability with Cronus Zen over the original DS4v1 (CUH-ZCT1).
As long as you have a DualSense® controller connected to A1, you can connect any supported licensed controller to A3, and it will work with all PS5 games without any lag or disconnections.
You will find the complete list of known supported controllers for each console on their dedicated support pages. Note: If your device is not listed, that simply means we haven't tested it ourselves yet. So, if you have a device that works but not listed, drop a note at cronus.support and we'll make sure it is added. 😁👍
Not anymore! Since May 12th, 2023, just connect your DualSense® controller to A1 for uninterrupted play on all PS5 and supported PS4 games (requires minimum firmware version 2.2.1).
No, this method from 2021 is outdated and no longer required. We still see them for sale for up to $50 - DO NOT BUY ONE IT IS NOW USELESS!
Assuming you have followed the correct setup steps, as of October 2023, you must disable Bluetooth in the PS5 settings.
