Windows 10 1903 problem:
DInput 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.
With DroidJoy you can use your Android Smartphone as PC Joystick / Controller. Almost every game is supported due DInput and XInput emulation. Play games like GTA V, Call of Duty, Need for Speed, Sonic Mania, GTA San Andreas, Counter Strike and many more.
