Mouse & Keyboard support is specifically designed for consoles, so PC performance may vary depending on the game and controller you are using. PC games must support Xbox 360 controllers as this is what the Zen emulates in Windows.

Have you plugged the zen in with the micro USB port (the port on the back of the zen) it won't work if you are using the cable you have plugged in to program scripts? SILVER II I am using an Castro C40 and I have updated the firmware, connected to Zen, registered, and refreshed stats.

I plugged the C40 into the front left port and the short USB cable from the back of the Zen into my PC. Matter of fact, Call of Duty doesn't even recognize that I have a controller plugged in and it's locked on “keyboard and mouse”.

Support Staff Plug micro and mini USB cables from the zen to your PC. Plug your controller into slot A3 or A2, go to the device tab in Zen Studio and change the Emulator Output Protocol XBOX 360.

Plug micro and mini USB cables from the zen to your PC. Plug your controller into slot A3 or A2, go to the device tab in Zen Studio and change the Emulator Output Protocol XBOX 360.

Support Staff If you do what I originally said, you can get cod to recognize the zen as a controller. So did you do all of these steps exactly: plug in BOTH your micro and mini USB cables from your zen to your PC.

Then go to the device tab in zen studio and switch the output protocol to XBOX 360. Using this method, I can play steam games using a mouse and keyboard plugged through the zen.

(Figured if I was going to use A3 as my controller port I would plug the mouse and keyboard into the other 2. Support Staff At no point did I mention you had to plug in your controller.

You don't need to plug in a controller into the zen to use a mouse and keyboard on PC. To check if your mouse is working, go to the device monitor and check that RY and RX change from 0 to actual numbers as you move the mouse that is connected to the zen.

Plug your controller into slot A3 or A2, go to the device tab in Zen Studio and change the Emulator Output Protocol XBOX 360. I can confirm that games on steam will recognize my PS4 controller using this method.

Support Staff Oh it's because initially I thought you were asking about a controller on PC. To eliminate any confusion here are the instructions to get mouse and keyboard working on PC : both micro and mini USB cables plugged from the zen to your PC.

Matter of fact, Call of Duty doesn't even recognize that I have a controller plugged in and it's locked on “keyboard and mouse”. I use the zen on PC with controller, and it works absolutely fine for me.

Firstly, plug your controller in to your PC on its own, and make sure it works without the zen, sometimes controllers need the drivers for them to function properly, this won't be your issue though, but it is just to do some simple checks. I assume as well that there will be an Castro C40 software, what you need to do in this step is make sure the firmware on your controller is up to date.

The idea is to get Aim Assist while using mouse and keyboard using the zen. The thing with the PC version of modern warfare is if it doesn't detect a controller it won't give you the controller options with aim assist.

However, I did also have the controller plugged in on the left USB slot, I know it states in manual you don't need it but just double check it's not an “authentication” issue. Support Staff Ok before trying it with a script, just test out your mouse and keyboard using the device monitor.

I checked the monitor and all the buttons work for the keyboard and mouse. I plugged the zen into the PC with nothing attached to it except the 2 USB cables, and it DOES recognize it as a controller.

Support Staff So if it does recognize it as a controller then your mouse and keyboard that are plugged into the zen should be accessible in cod. So if it does recognize it as a controller then your mouse and keyboard that are plugged into the zen should be accessible in cod.

The issue I'm having is when I have my mouse and keyboard in the zen in slot A2 and A3 Modern Warfare PC doesn't recognize me as having a controller. If I unplug the mouse and keyboard and only plug the zen into the PC then it DOES recognize me as having a controller.
