Considering Flash is no longer supported on browser, you should post the itch.io link instead.

Ok, so here is the itch.io link:
https://teamcarrot.itch.io/slime-builder

But i am having problems getting it started there. Maybe somebody has faced similar problems and can tell me how to solve this.

If the issue is what I think it is, then follow this post to replace the project template, but rather than remove the line in question, replace gzip with pak.
In reference to this forum post: http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,59252.msg310481.html#msg310481

Try this. A future Stencyl update will let you chose the packaging method for HTML5 games, so in the meanwhile try this and see if it lets the game load.

Thanks a lot for the support!

So here is what I did:
I copied the file at [stencyl install]/sw.jar/res/templates/project.xml to [stencyl workspace]/templates/project.xml. (I had to make the directory "templates" there) Then, in the copied file, near the bottom, I changed the line <library name="default" type="gzip" if="publishing" /> to  <library name="default" type="pak" if="publishing" />.
The I started stencyl and "published" the game as htm5.

It did not solve the issue. The output was a zip file. On itch.io it still loads the game but gets stuck at the end of the loader and does not start.

You could also try deleting the line entirely.

What that changes is how the assets are packaged inside the .zip file of the game (looks for the lib or assets folder inside the zip file). The game will always be exported as a .zip file in the end.

Thank's for your help, folks, but that didn't help neither. Also, I don't think the way the zip is packed is the problem, because the preloader starts with an image so obiviously the files and subdirectories are being found. Just it doesn't get further than that on itch.io. On other servers it does.

If you open the web inspector for your browser, you should be able to view the console and network requests. Are there errors in the console? Do you see any network activity when the game is supposed to be loading?

Ah, I missed the fact that you had shared the game. I don't know if that's an old version of the game, but it's still using the gzip packing method. There's an error when trying to unpack the gzipped content. I'm not sure what the problem is yet, but I'll try to fix it in a later release.

Before uploading your game, you can confirm which packing method it used by opening [game name].zip/manifest/default.json, and seeing at the very end, "libraryArgs":["lib/default.pak","gzip"]. Here the packing method used is gzip.
