So the problem is that if I try to paste a url that starts with https://... into the URL field of the flash projector, it simply stays white.
If I try to directly open the url via console, it says: "Error: Invalid SWF file name".
It seems like this error appears every time I try to open any https website.
No Problems using the browser btw.
On the last command it opened the flashplayer.
Here it simply stays white.

I had the same problem. The projector doesn't appear to accept https urls as parameters (I guess only the Linux version, since quite a few people use the projector to play the game and nobody else seems to have reported this issue).
Given that flash is now officially EOL and the Linux version of the projector hasn't been updated in a thousand years, the odds of this annoying bug being fixed now are pretty much nil.
I worked around this by downloading the swf file and opening the local file. I had to log back into the game and redo all my settings, but only once.
I have a script which automates downloading the latest file and running it:
wget https://www.realmofthemadgod.com/client -O rotmg.swf
(I remove the file at the end to make sure that I never play using an old version.)
I've saved that as a file called rotmg in my ~/bin and made it executable. This assumes that flashplayer is also on the path (I also have it in my ~/bin).
I also made a file called rotmg.desktop and put it in my .local/share/applications/ to get a menu entry (works for any environment that uses the XDG menu standard):
Name=Realm of the Mad God
Thank you very very much, that solved it
