I have a Google Sites website where I post games with Flash. Since the end of life is in a couple weeks, I started putting HTML Games. There's this one particular game I want to add, called Milk Quest. When I get it set up, I enable flash and I am met with a white screen. When right clicking, there's 3 boxes: Movie not loaded, Check for updates, and About Flash Player. I use the same exact method to add other flash games, and they work. Any help with this issue is highly appreciated.
System info: (I have an HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE)
|Google Chrome||87.0.4280.109 (Official Build) (64-bit)|
|Platform||13505.73.0 (Official Build) stable-channel octopus|
Since Adobe doesn't make games, Google sites or HP Chromebooks, I don't think you'll find an answer here. Sorry.
I suggest you ask whoever developed the game why it doesn't work for you.
There's not enough information here to guess about it. You'd need to install a Flash Debugger variant to see what error is getting thrown, and then go about resolving that error. It's entirely dependent on how the game is built.
I can't download a Flash Debugger, Can I have instructions?
To avoid confusion yes I know you said you enabled flash. Fact is the thing bricked itself. To test if your flash is really enabled you can try loading this game that I know still works. https://www.albinoblacksheep.com/games/run
For more info on things about flash archives and flash player substitutes I wrote an article here a few days ago called Flash Is Forever - It will Survive Past 2020 - Here is how!
If the game "Run" works and every other flash game on your site can work right now I can only think of two things.
1) There is something wrong with the flash file itself. What you are trying to load is a broken swf or was never actually the game you were trying to get (sometimes people save a random swf instead of the game.)
Check if the swf works at all by downloading from here. https://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/debug_downloads.html
A version that says Projector Content Debugger I think is what you need. Load it and open your game with it. If you get the game to open I think that should mean the file is perfect.
2) Alternatively the issue is incompatability with the game and what is being used to play it. This I really cant help. If you tell me the site (something I would be happy to know anyway) I can check if it loads for me. If it doesnt we know its the fault of the site. Otherwise its your computer / browser.
If the file is perfect and the issue is the site you will need a different tool to play it. You can make the game a downloadable link and direct people to obtain a standalone SWF Player. (The thing I had you get.) Not sure how long that particular link will remain or if adobe has placed a kill switch into the program that will eventually brick it. There are however many independant SWF / Flash Players out there for all kinds of devices.
I see a working version of the game here. http://www.begamer.com/flash-game/22769/milk-quest/
Please consider using this to archive SWFs. https://bluemaxima.org/flashpoint/
That works, it's my site that has the issue.
The script for the game seems to be Action Script one and two. I suggest you try finding something like SuperNova SWF Enabler, Ruffle.rs, Waflash, Apache Royale, or CheerpX to play it. Ruffle.rs has a discord where I suspect you can get lots more help than I can provide.
Sorry I couldnt help more. I wish you luck and if you dont mind please send me a url of your site so I can play on it.

Link was removed. Feel free to PM me. Thanks in advance.
Me again. I know I just sent you a big comment. Sorry. I just checked. The one that just says Projector is said to run much faster as a player since its not doing extra things. No timebomb in it either as of my writing.
@R0BL0XIAN Its not loading because flash disabled itself. It did that for a lot of people long before its EOL date. You need to find a substitute to play your flash files with. Lots of them are out there. A commonly used one is Ruffle.rs. Its buggy at the moment but it has lots of attention and a desire to improve. Ive seen SuperNova SWF Enabler work for me on chrome. Again most of these things are a work in progress.
The substitutes being worked on emulate a flash player but play things as if they were Html5 or webassembly.
