Cronus Adapter Banned from all Big E Gaming Events

Hi Guys,

I am the project leader of the new CronusMAX software and just wanted to touch base with you regarding the ban of the old Cronus Device.

Firstly I agree with you, the old device was poorly managed indeed. The software isn't that good and very outdated, and the hardware itself had some very shoddy build quality.

This is why we started the CronusMAX project a few months ago as we are Cronus users ourselves and were not happy with the lack of support and it seemed like anyone who had a problem wasn't being helped.

Let me direct you to this information on our website just so you can get a better understanding of who we are first of all: http://cronusmax.com/who-are-cronusmax

As you can see we are completely independent and nothing to do with the original Cronus, we simply set ourselves up to get as many of the devices as we could, check each one for any defaults or defects and make them good and then we designed our own software and firmware to clean out any bugs, improve performance and add all new features to support the next generation of consoles.

As you can see here we have been very busy with updating and improving the device: http://cronusmax.com/category/cronusmax-news

Our new version doesn't have any of the issues that have been highlighted, however I also agree that it is completely unsuitable for a Tournament environment. Even though the cross-gaming/remapping works fantastic with CronusMAX it also has all of the scripting and macros and GamePacks which are of course not suitable for Tournaments.

We have been in discussion with some Pro Gamers about this and are looking at designing a "Tournament Edition". These will be certified as fully tested "in-game", no lag or other issues and will have a custom firmware that only supports Cross Gaming and button Remapping.

Now I totally accept that the old Cronus has a bum name due to the issues highlighted so it would be difficult to determine which users had a "good" Cronus against a "poor" one. So we are open to designing our own custom version (which will not be branded as Cronus) and will be designed solely for Tournaments in mind, backed by our far superior design and manufacturing capabilities and of course support. We could also of course design a new shell (perhaps a different color?) that is shipped to those who are only using the Tournament firmware and would effectively re-brand the device into something that wouldn't cause any issues at all. We have tested our firmware in multiple environments with multiple players and there are no power/lag issues whatsoever.

I appreciate the decision made and in fact agree with it, but I figured I'd lay out my point of view as a professional and fellow gamer and hoped for some feedback

Thank you for your time

PS Admin: I am happy to provide a few samples of the new CronusMAX for you to try them out yourselves - feel free to drop me a line :)

@CronusMAX Can you please elaborate on this? I bought one of the new devices so I can use my fightpad on the Xbox one/Killer Instinct. Is this safe to use on local gameplay if no macros/gamepacks are used? (not even sure what they are - I just went through the remapping process for the controller).

What is going on guys, Ya Boi Zyphox here.
Lol this is what happened to me at SJ when i fought king but when i was apparently complaining for sharing my concerns with the device. I stopped and reset the console after almost getting double perfected by king game one, by the time we tested it out it was working fine and then you saw me almost win the 2nd game but just how dramatically different it felt after resetting the console set me back game one.

Ive been using mine a month now for KI and no problems whatsoever.

I don't goto tournaments however.

If you are just looking for a cheaper way to play KI with your old fightstick, cronusmax works amazingly.

I know the madcatz sticks, hori, and Eightarc work with the cronus but tge Injustice stick doesn't.

I am.going to send my Injustice stick to Cronus so they can add support for the stick however.
 
@CronusMAX So is the old Cronus device causing the input lag for the other player only? or is the CronusMax doing the same thing as the cronus device?
I have never experienced this with the CronusMAX software/firmware and it's not been reported to us. I wouldn't be surprised if the old devices had this issue.

No thats an awful price.

What stick do you have (system) and what systems do you want it to play on?
