An unofficial solution to get the new Xbox One controller working on your PC
So, while we are waiting for Microsoft to support the Xbox One controller on PC (they promised it was coming at some point in 2014), we can try this workaround that Lucas Assis has developed with some software/drivers. This in conjunction with another program will allow you to use the controller on Windows (Mac and Linux versions are on their way).
Warning again, this was developed on under a day, I'm releasing due to a high number of people asking for it. It works, and it works great, but it's not really that easy to install (involves installing another 2 programs, both which are open-source and adware free).
I recommend XPadder for setting up the gamepad to keys, or x360ce for XInput games (but I WON'T give support for x360ce, DON'T EVEN ask me about it. I inserted a little about it on this video, but x360ce is actually the most buggy app I have ever tinkered with. I don't want this problem in my life xD).
Linux and Mac users: probably will have a version soon.
PS.: Non-English speaker, been a few months without speaking. Sorry for hiccups
You can watch the video he prepared to know how to do the installation.
ControllerMAX (formerly CronusMAX) warns about some China dealers trying to sell fake CronusMAX devices.
According to the guys over at ControllerMAX (formerly CronusMAX), some Chinese dealers are trying to sell old Cronus Device stock and passing them off as CronusMAX.
Apparently, these have been badly repaired by hand, so you are now WARNED. Don't get those!
Here's the info:
BE WARNED! There are China dealers trying to sell old Cronus Device stock and passing them off as CronusMAX. We received various samples and most seemed to have been repaired by hand and the work was terrible with dry joints and bridge solder on the IC (see picture). Half of them wouldn't even work without some soldering repairs or replacement of components.
All the serial numbers showed up as none CM and none of them will work with Gtuner or any of the GamePacks and none of them can be programmed to any new firmware or new features. Make sure you buy from a genuine retailer listed at controllermax.com/retailers
If you have already bought one of these expecting for everything to work correctly then you have two options. Return it to whomever you bought it from for a refund or you can pay the ControllerMAX Upgrade fee of $29.99 available at our store.
