DIY Arcade Stick HELP n00b


#1

Guys i need major help trying to attempt my first arcade stick for xbox 360, need some suggestions before buying parts.

I will be using this shell and use a wired controller xbox PCB, i will put sanwa 30mm buttons in there. The wiring from the buttons to the xbox 360 pcb should be straight forward but for the joystick i’m not sure as i will be using a sanwa.

Does the sanwa joystick need microswitches to solder from the joystick to board/pcb?

Should i buy a joystick with microswitches?

You know, there’s a lot of threads that you could post this in, a lot of resources you could figure this out from, and a lot of other things you could do other than hitting the ‘new post’ button.

I think the pink “Image Theft” really just makes this the perfect post.
“Should i buy a joystick with microswitches?”= quality.
