the path of light i needed, thank you!
wine prefixes, been using them for many years, it’s also what tools like PoL use. prefixes make wine better then windows, each app gets its own dedicated space, you can screw up that prefix without causing problems with your other wine installed programs/games. it’s easy to pick up a prefix and move it to another machine or drive.
and most importantly, it’s easy to remove a program/game, we all know how well windows unstallers work (ie they don’t and always leave a gigantic mess behind, sometimes causing problems later on).
