So, I have a file on my computer:

C:/IdleGame.txt

And I can acess it in Chrome via

file://C:/IdleGame.txt

So can I do something like:

orteil.dashnet.org/experiments/idlegamemaker/?game=file://C:/IdleGame.txt (I tried this already)

    You can't do it like that.
    Paste your thing on this.
    The link should look something like this: http://orteil.dashnet.org/experiments/idlegamemaker/?game=hczBgm6k

    You can't do it like that.

    you can access local files yourself through your browser, so i guess it's possible
    but if you want to publish a game you need to use pastebin or something...
    i didn't try, since i don't need it and tbh i don't see a reason to use it that way.
    but yeah... fun fact i guess?

    Your browser on your machine can access it, but the website can't unless you set up ftp or point it to your IP address or something. The problem is you're giving it a local path, but the website isn't hosted on the same computer as you're using. That's why it has to be online, since there is a public address for it to look for.
