I checked the file path and that seems to be fine as well. Not able to upload file structure photo as new users are only allowed to put one photo

        this.load.image('background', 'public/assets/BG.png');
        this.load.image('ground', 'public/assets/Tiles/Tile (2).png');

It looks like the error comes from these lines, you need to have those files in your local directory in that particular folder path.

Did this fix the issue? I ran into a similar problem before, and needed to type the entire URL because the Phaser API did not know the local directory. For instance, you may need to add: as your file path.

Alternatively, prior to calling this.load.image, you can set your baseURL like the following:
