Information

- If you want to connect more than one controller with your PC, please configure amount of gamepads in the server application

Note: If your game doesn't recognize the virtual gamepad as input device, this could have several reasons. Some new games just support XBox360 gamepads and won't work with other gamepads like the DroidJoy virtual controller. If you want to play a game which only supports xBox360 gamepads you can try the x360ce tool. Note, there is no guarantee that the external x360ce application fully supports DroidJoy or any of your games. Please try the free demo version before installing the application.
