Hey all,

Some time ago, I decided not to package my sample projects with ALL the default assets (images, audio, etc.) but only the files I needed. My community members then had to manually create a fresh new project, close RPG Maker, copy-paste my stuff into it, and open RPG Maker again. Well, it works for both MV and MZ!

Whereas this flow was efficient for me, as I don't have to upload an MV and MZ version, it also confuses many of my community members.

TL;DR
I made a batch file that automatically sets up a new RPG Maker project with the engine my community member can choose and inserts my stuff into it. One click and they have my Sample Project ready to open in RPG Maker!

I think this batch can also be a helpful time-saver for other people. I primarily made it for other Devs who wanted to distribute their Sample project and save memory space by leaving out the RTP. But maybe, we can extend the batch file to make it even more flexible.

I'm open to any pull requests, as right now, it only works when RPG Maker is installed with Steam.
