So…don’t judge me I have my trusty modded Atrox for normal fighting games…but I’m building a fight stick for Super Smash Brothers: Project M.
The main issue I’m having however, is that I need to be able to register tilts as well as full directional movement, so it looks like I need to use a 360 degree stick similar to what you see in some arcade cabinets.
I’m looking at the Ultrastik 360 Arcade Joystick for the stick and my PCB is planned to be the Toodles Cthulu (because what CAN’T you do? <3), I just don’t know if I can use this stick on this PCB as this is my first build. (although I have modded my Atrox with some new wiring, art, restrictor plate, and blazblue buttons)

If this is a no-go, do you guys know of any sticks that can handle the tilts that I need? I’m having difficulty finding anything outside of the reliable 8-way sticks I’m used to.
edit: alternatively, are there any controller thumbstick modules that work well if I attach a stick and balltop to the end of without them having an awkward feel?
