Breathe new life in to your old racing wheel with Cronus Zen, now supporting any Logitech DGFT, G25 and G27 wheel, plus many Fanatec wheels, fully functional on a PlayStation 4 console, including full Force Feedback, Pedals, and Shifter support.
It also supports the clutch, brake and gas pedals of each wheel, including the 6 speed gear shifter. No special scripts or plugins are required and there is no need to have a PC connected to your console. All you need is an original DS4 controller connect to Zen's A1 USB Port to authenticate the Cronus Zen to your PlayStation 4.

First connect Cronus Zen to a Windows PC (or Mac with Windows 10 installed) using a mini-USB cable from the PROG USB Port (See highlighted in red below). Then open Zen Studio.
Open the Zen Operational Mode interface by selecting Tools 👉 Zen Operational Mode. Then select 'Wheel Mode' and click Finish.
Once Wheel Mode is active, the letters WE will appear to the right of Zen's firmware version (FW v2.03 WE in the above example). The active Operational Mode is displayed in the status bar, and you can also click this area to load the Zen Operational Mode interface.
The OLED Message Screen will display the following graphic.
1. Connect a DualShock 4 controller to the Zen A1 USB port using a micro-USB cable. This original licensed controller is required for security authentication and other console specific features, such as headset audio, and must be connected at all times. We call this the 'Auth Controller' and it is important that it's not paired to your PS4.
2. Connect your wheel's USB cable to the Zen A3 USB port. Be sure to use the wheel's own AC adapter for power.
3. Using the included short (12") micro-USB cable, connect Zen's rear CONSOLE USB port to your PS4. The RGB LED will light Blue.
The PS4 Wheel Edition emulates a Logitech G29. This is how the G29 buttons are mapped to a Logitech G27.
Note 1: L4 L5 and R4 R5 do not exist on a G29 wheel - so we have mapped the outputs to the G29 Dial (clockwise and counter-clockwise) and G29 Rocker +/-.
Note 2: L3 + R3 pressed together emulates the PS button.
Note 3: All the standard controller buttons have been mapped to the G27 Shifter and Wheel Paddles so you can navigate the PS4 XMB without having to use a DualShock 4.
This is the layout of the Logitech G29. Note the Rocker and Dial (which is mapped to L4/L5 and R4/R5 on the G27)
Here's an overlay sticker for the G25 / G27 shifter that we designed. Simply save the image file (click on it for the full sized version then right click + Save image as...) and print it to size and place on the shifter plate.
The Cronus Zen controls all data between the console and the controller, including Bluetooth. So the PlayStation 4 has to have Wired Communication enabled in the console's settings.
For the PS4, this option is only available when using a DualShock 4 model CUH-ZCT2 (known as DS4v2).

This makes sure your controller does not power off while connected to the Zen, ensuring seamless performance.
