Release Porting Kit 4.1.45

It’s June and that means all the updates in experimental branch will go to the main branch up to today! It contains loads of fixes and enhancements. Check out the list below. I will pick out a very important one which is the introduction of WSI3 files!

WSI3 files:
In porting kit we use WSI files which is a kinda script. We started with WSI1 (quite simple) WSI2 (more advanced) and now WSI3 files which are even more advanced. This means we can for example add special steps for Apple Silicon or Intel GFX card Macs and so on to specialize the settings the best way for your Mac per specific game :)
