Supported Devices
A list of all known supported Mice and Keyboard for the Cronus Zen, including notes and recommendations.
This is a list of mice & keyboards that users have reported to be working. Cronus Zen is designed to detect almost any device that conforms to the standard USB interface, so if your mouse is not listed here, it does not mean it's not supported, only that it hasn't been tested and reported back to us yet

DO NOT use any scripts or GamePacks until you have tuned the mouse settings to where movement is what you expect/like. Mods are optimally engineered for controllers (unless specified), so all Mod settings would need to be changed to suit mouse movement because using Mods WILL affect your Mouse settings as the game mechanics are entirely different (maximum in-game sensitivity is required for example - controller sensitivity settings would make a mouse feel really sluggish and jittery).
REMEMBER that the Cronus Zen digitally converts Mouse & Keyboard Signals to raw controller outputs - so the mouse will always appear as a controller on your Console or PC.
ALWAYS check your polling and DPI settings. Make sure these are set correctly in your mouse software (Console = 250Hz, PC = 1000Hz).
CHECK the Mouse & Keyboard Community for the latest Zen Studio Mouse Profiles.
AIM ASSIST is designed for controllers, not mice. Why you say? Answers can be found here.

Mouse Recommended Settings

It is important to make sure your mouse has on-board memory profiles where you can assign or dynamically change both the mouse DPI and polling rate and set them according to the recommendations below. If a mouse has more than 4 buttons, they will most likely not be recognized by Zen until mapped to a key using its software, such as Logitech G-Hub or Razer Synapse 3.
Some models like the Razer Deathadder Elite don't have on-board memory profiles, however they will still work with their default settings and as long as the mouse is a high quality gaming mouse, you should be fine.

Mouse Polling Rate

The Cronus Zen Mouse & Keyboard engine has been designed to work optimally with the hosts polling rate. For example, an Xbox One polls at 125Hz (8ms) and a PS4 polls at 250Hz (4ms). So in the case of using M&K on a console, we highly recommend you set the polling rate of the mouse to 250Hz. If you don't have that option, 500hz should work fine. It is a matter of personal preference of course, but you'll find 250Hz on a console is a huge difference over the standard 1000Hz (which we do recommend for PC use) - it goes from stutter to butter!

Mouse DPI

Cronus Zen supports all Maximum DPI/CPI rates, however in many cases we have found the console sweet spot to be around 4000dpi. Some models work best when set to their Maximum dpi, some mice perform well at just 1800dpi. You can of course set it to whatever you feel works best for you, it is entirely your own preference.

It is important that you are using the latest software and firmware for your Mouse & Keyboard, including any other updates that may be available. These are used to customize multiple features including polling rate, dpi, button key binding and other features such as RGB lights if applicable. Here's some useful links to the most popular brand brands:

In-Game Settings

One of the most important, and most overlooked requirements of using a Mouse & Keyboard on a console is the in-game settings.

While it is our goal to add support for as many of the most popular gaming mice as possible, there will always be models that do not function correctly, or at all. These usually require custom drivers and will be updated in a future firmware release if support is possible.
