Post Teleporters very wierd sometimes.
This is the teleporter from Ballistic Weapons:Mercenaries. It still remains the same as it was in the release and you can actually play and test it.

The thing is, the teleporter can act a bit wierd sometimes. I suspect theres something broken with the code or something wrong about it. The whole code uses very wierd stuff that I have no idea of so I really need help.

About wierd stuff this can happen:
-Teleporting inside a random object
-Crashing the game, with no errors what so ever.
-Teleporting out of thin air

This is the code. Although if you have BW.rte, you can find it as a file and test it.
Its located in BW.rte/Maps/teleporter.ini

Code:
function Create(self)
   if (_teleporters == nil) then
      _teleporters = {self}
   else
      table.insert(_teleporters,self)
   end
   self.teledelaytimer = Timer();
   self.teleactivate = nil;
   self.thistele = #_teleporters;
end

function Destroy(self)
   table.remove(_teleporters,self.thistele)
end

function Update(self)
   if(#_teleporters > 1) then
     for actor in MovableMan.Actors do
     if (actor.Pos.X >= self.Pos.X - 24) and (actor.Pos.X <= self.Pos.X + 24) and (actor.Pos.Y >= self.Pos.Y - 25) and (actor.Pos.Y <= self.Pos.Y + 25) and (actor.PinStrength <= 0)then
       if not self.teleactivated or self.teleactivated == 0 then
         self.teleactivate = CreateAEmitter("Teleport Activation");
       self.teleactivate.Lifetime = 2000;
       self.teleactivate.Pos = self.Pos;
         self.teleactivate:EnableEmission(true);
         MovableMan:AddParticle(self.teleactivate);
         self.teledelaytimer:Reset();
         self.teleactivated = 1
   print(self.thistele);
       else
       if self.teledelaytimer:IsPastSimMS(2000)then
      --TELEPORTATION HAPPENS HERE
         local i = #_teleporters --Failsafe.
         -- The below commented code has random teleport.
         --[[
         i = math.random(1,#_teleporters)
         while i == self.thistele
         do
         i = math.random(1,#_teleporters)
         end
         --]]
         --Below code is pair teleport
         --[[
         if self.thistele%2 == 1 then
         i = self.thistele + 1;
         end
         if self.thistele%2 == 0 then
         i = self.thistele - 1;
         end
         if i > #_teleporters) --Abort teleport if unpaired
         then
         self.teledelaytimer:Reset();
         self.teleactivate.Lifetime = 1;
         self.teleactivated = 0
         break
         end
         --]]
         --Below code is sequential teleport
         i = self.thistele + 1;
         if (i > #_teleporters) -- Kiosk keyboards suck.
         then
         i = 1;
         end
         for oactor in MovableMan.Actors do
         if (oactor.Pos.X >= _teleporters[i].Pos.X - 24) and (oactor.Pos.X <= _teleporters[i].Pos.X + 24) and (oactor.Pos.Y >= _teleporters[i].Pos.Y - 25) and (oactor.Pos.Y <= _teleporters[i].Pos.Y + 25)
         then
         oactor:GibThis();
         _teleporters[i].teledelaytimer:Reset(); -- Needed
         _teleporters[i].teleactivate.Lifetime = 1;
         _teleporters[i].teleactivated = 0
         end
         end
   actor:FlashWhite(400);
   local sound = CreateAEmitter("Teleport Sound Emitter");
   sound.Pos = self.Pos;
   MovableMan:AddParticle(sound);
         actor.Pos = _teleporters[i].Pos
         self.teledelaytimer:Reset();
         self.teleactivate.Lifetime = 1;
         self.teleactivated = 0
       end
       end
     end
     end   
     if self.teledelaytimer:IsPastSimMS(2000) and self.teleactivate -- Sanity Check.
     then
     self.teledelaytimer:Reset();
     self.teleactivate.Lifetime = 1;
     self.teleactivated = 0;
     end
   end
end
