Put the scripts in your projects directory (if you have not defined it, you can choose that directory in the preferences of the launcher).
If your programmer has sent the "game" directory, then you need to create a folder "MyGameName" in the projects directory and put the "game" directory there.
If your programmer has only sent the scripts separately, you need to create a "MyGameName" directory, a "game" directory inside it, and put your scripts in it.
