Windows 10 1903 problem:
input is no longer supported in the server version 2.1.0. If you still need to use DInput you must use the DroidJoy server version 2.0.4 and you must have installed an older Windows version than Windows 10 build 1903.
If you have any problems with the installation of the server, don’t hesitate to contact me. I will reply as soon as possible.
!Be sure the DroidJoy server is running when you start your game or emulator. The game may not recognize gamepads that are plugged in during its runtime. In this case, simply restart your game!
