main menu memory workaround
by kolAflash on Sunday August 7th 2022, 17:27
With DXVK in the main menu all system memory (RAM) is being quickly consumed.

Workaround:
github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/1866#issuecomment-772943552

winecfg -> Applications -> Add application ->
C:\Program Files (x86)\Warcraft III\_retail_\x86_64\BlizzardBrowser\BlizzardBrowser.exe

Keep BlizzardBrowser.exe selected in the Applications tab and switch to the Libraries tab.
Add d3d11 and dxgi and set them to "Builtin (Wine)".
