Load local files on Chrome-os

I am trying to create a JavaScript pacman game, but whenever I try and load my script files or images, I get the error:

enter image description here

The browser I'm using is chrome, and the files are stored in the same directory. I am running CHROME OS, so I can't just go into files and edit an existing flag.

Same for the images, except the file name is different.

Does anyone know why I am getting an error

Access Denied
, or how I could test the files?

The files are loaded using this format

<script src="Scripts/gamescript.js"></script>
<body>
<div class="game" id="game">
<img src="/Images/ghosts/red.png" />
</div>
</body>


Per request, here is my file tree

/Javascript_Pacman_Game/
index.html
/Styles/
stylesheet.css
/Scripts/
gamescript.js
myCustomLibrary.js
setInterval.js
/Images/
/Ghosts/
red.png
blue.png
pink.png
orange.png
scared.png
/GameElements/
board.jpg
bloop.png
superBloop.png


The problem isn't spelling or file permissions, and I can't run a local host because of Chrome-OS.

Answer

Try installing Web server for Chrome, telling it to serve files from your /Javascript_Pacman_Game folder, and testing your app at http://127.0.0.1:8887/
