Deus Ex Mankind Divided via wine/proton?

Fine, it seems denuvo kicks in when one changes wine version too fast.
Probably they see as the same copy is running on different machines, and blocks it.
So either use the same wine version, or stop it from accessing the internet via unshare.
I've done both with the following:

GAMEPATH="$SCRIPTDIR/Deus Ex Mankind Divided"


sudo setcap cap_sys_admin+ep /usr/bin/unshare
DXVK_HUD=fps unshare -n wine "$GAMEPATH"/retail/DXMD.EXE -benchmark #<- -benchmark is to skip intro videos
