Ultra-Stik - Analogue Joystick with Switch Sockets

Ultra-Stik Analogue Joystick with Switch Interface

D.I.Y. analogue joystick. Image of the P.C.B. and wiring.

The chunky joystick above was designed for SpecialEffect originally after a request from Bill Donegan to look into the Ultimarc Ultra-Stik, hoping to make a simple and fairly affordable controller for gaming.

Turns out it works great. It's an analogue joystick with the potential for up to eight switch sockets (I've fitted four). On a PC using JoyToKey, it can be set-up to work as a mouse. I've built a profile that has the four switches set up as: LEFT-CLICK, RIGHT-CLICK, LEFT-CLICK DRAG, ADJUST MOVEMENT SPEED. You can set it up anyway you like, and with the Controller Max / Cronus Max / Cronus Device / Whatever they're calling it next, you can use it on Xbox 360, Xbox One and PS3 after a bit of tinkering.

£115 from the OneSwitch.org.uk Accessible Gaming Shop, or you can build your own accessible analogue joystick by following the DIY guide here. Works very nicely with a Trabasack Connect.

    Trying to confirm Ultrastik and cronusmax compatibility, I've searched the controller max forums, but see no mention, is this in both analog and 8 way "digital"mode? This is great news if true.

    Yes, you can get it working in analogue or digital modes and you can get it recognised by CronusMax. Sorry so slow to respond. Best to e-mail!
