It looks like on all of the included scripts except the relevant line in the header has been removed/overwritten by the standard PlexGuide header/comments block.

Additionally I had to set the permissions on the host machine as follows, and restart the nzbget process for it to recognise the scripts and provide them for selection in the GUI:

Without the header lines being added AND the permissions change on the host NZBGet was not finding or recognising the scripts.
