REALLY, VERY, SUPER IMPORTANT
Listen up people, this is important stuff:
- In Zen Studio , don't use the Tools > Firmware Update option. Even if it suggests updating to the latest version, it'll only go up to Beta 50 and you'll get dumb "Firmware Version Incompatible" errors.
- The newer firmware has its own standalone update tool, which you will find in STEP 1: Update Firmware.
The video introduces the new Cronus Zen Quick Start Guides.
Zen's latest firmware has got you covered for all major consoles - whether you're on PlayStation® 5, Xbox® Series X|S, or diving into the Nintendo® Switch.
Got an official controller? It'll work. Most third-party licensed ones? Those work too.
And don't worry about it supporting specific games. Zen plays nice with every game across all platforms. 🚀
GAMEPACKS & SCRIPTS WARNING
Hold off on ANY GamePacks or scripts until you've completed the first four steps. Seriously. Most issues arise when users rush this. Everyone reaching out to cronus.support with laggy controllers or deadzone issues skipped this step.
