This error happens because you try to play a game in the web browser directly when running INDEX.HTML.

Modern browsers have a security system that prevents local files from trying to capture information from other sites via AJAX, but you can disable this security (CROSS-ORIGIN).

The tutorial is for the following browsers:
  • Google Chrome
  • Opera (Chromium)
  • Mozilla Firefox

Google Chrome/Opera:
To disable use the following command line:
--allow-file-access-from-files

  • Create a browser shortcut on the Desktop.
  • Right-click on it and select Properties.
  • In the "Destination" box enter the parameter after the second quotation mark with a space and save.

Mozilla Firefox:
In the browser address bar enter the following command:
about:config

Press [I'll be careful, I promise!] button.Do not change anything on this screen, just what was shown in the tutorial.

In the search field type:
security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy

Double click this item, it will change from "true" to "false".This is done, but you may need to restart the browser.

I'm using version 87 of Chrome, and it's working.
You must have written the command line without a space.

I just installed IIS and tested from there. For more serious testing I have access to a friend's VPS :)

I honestly don't recall which method I used but most of them should be fairly easy to follow and then it's running off an actual website ( even if it's just your computer) so the browsers won't care.

I wouldn't recommend opening up your computer to be a full-blown webserver to the internet though unless you want to deal with additional security issues. Just keep it local. But overall it's a fairly good way to be able to test your HTML5 games without trying fake out your browser.

In the Rpg Maker manual there is a tutorial teaching how to enable the local server in Windows.
(RPG Maker MV> Documentation> Local server configuration)
  1. MacOS
  2. Linux

But in this case, I showed you how to open index.html directly from Explorer, as a faster alternative.

''Finds icons that fits the game you're making'' Only covers 20% of what you need :p
I'm very manic-y right now. I didn't sleep and I wanted to get a bunch of stuff done, but didn't get anything done except the bare bones concept for a POSSIBLE game.
And I can't sleep now because I'm probably gonna be hanging out with my brother and I gotta discuss a bunch of BroCoG (our game group) junk with him plus it's far to late to sleep NOW.

While I wait for judging, I decided to start adding more "friends" to my attic. :LZSgrin:

I swear I need a whole sound pack of menacing squeaky toy noises. :kaoswt:
I can't believe I actually managed to stay motivated for the whole Game Jam duration (1 month!), definitely will be taking a break after this :0
