Being paid to rewrite someone else's bad code is no joke.

I'll give the dev this, the use of gen 1,2,3 Pokemon for variable names and class names in beyond fantastic in terms of memory and childhood nostalgia. It would be even more fantastic if he spelt the names correctly, or used it to make a Pokemon game and NOT A FUCKING ACCOUNTANCY PROGRAM.

There's no correspondence in name according to type, or even number. Dev has just gone batshit, left zero comments, and now somehow Ryhorn is shitting out error codes because of errors existing in Charmeleon's asshole.

The things I do for money...

    On the plus side, the predecessor has at least used some recognisable variable names...

    Why the burning fuck do these assholes consider doing this shit in programs!!??

    I hope he's atleast left a key meaning pair cheet sheat in comments.

    This reminds me of my ex roommate who fucking used variable names like hell, savage and all those.

    FUCKING USE MEANINGFUL NAMES FOR FUCKING SAKE OF HUMANITY!!!!

    Edit: CAN'T STOP MYSELF! THAT DUMB PIECE OF SHIT NEEDS TO BE KILLED **NOW** !!!

    I can just picture you looking through that mess and trying to wrap your head around it...

    "Okay, so, variable Pikachu increments every time the for loop loops... but why is variable Bulbasaur affected by this? Its value should remaign stagnant."
    *10 minutes later*
    "Oooh, that's why that happened. The variable called Mewtwo checks for this loop every 100 ms, in a timer.
    But why?"
    *10 minutes later*
    "Ok, the variable Mewtwo wanted to check the loop, to increment the variable Bulbasaur, which in turn serves as a counter for variable Pikachu. Now it's clear."

    "...wait, what's this other variable, Gardevoir?"

    // and yes, I'm making sh¡t up as I go, just cause xD
