Stage File Proxy is a general solution for getting production files on a development server on demand. It saves you time and disk space by sending requests to your development environment's files directory to the production environment and making a copy of the production file in your development site. You should not need to enable this module in production.

Passing variables in lua

Here is an example of passing variables in lua:

gStateMachine:change('begin-game', {
            level = self.level,
            score = self.score,
            matchispossible = false

then on the receiving end in the BeginGameState.lua

function BeginGameState:enter(def)
    -- grab level # from the def we're passed
    self.level = def.level
    self.score = def.score
