I’m really interested in game making with Phaser but I have an issue.
Whenever I try linking my own image to the script, the only sprite I get is a black box with a green line inside it, this is the code I’ve written.

function preload() {
  // Load in the sprite here!
this.load.image('player', 'http://www.doolwind.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/run.png');

function create() {
  // Create a sprite game object here!
this.add.sprite(60, 80, 'player');

const config = {
	type: Phaser.AUTO,
	width: 450,
	height: 600,
	backgroundColor: "#5f2a55",
	scene: {

const game = new Phaser.Game(config)

And then I get this


Codey is blocked by CORS!

I am unable to load the codey image from the s3 bucket.

This is the error:

Access to XMLHttpRequest at 'https://s3.amazonaws.com/codecademy-content/courses/learn-phaser/codey.png' from origin 'https://abfe70ab988d4a7e9029d30a9d7c912d.cc-propeller.cloud' has been blocked by CORS policy: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource.

Do I need prior knowledge of JavaScript for this course?

I have the exact same problem but with the images in the learn game development with phaser.js classes, i dont know what im doing wrong and it looks like even the solutions from the website are broken since its the exact same thing i did and its still broken.

I got the same problem
