Jump to: navigation, search

We may have a couple of classes, variables, and functions that aren't named too well. Some are too long, aren't descriptive, etc. List the things that you don't like here, and try to give some suggestions for alternates.

Function names

  • setMiscRegWithEffect - setMiscReg (will have to rename current setMiscReg to setMiscRegNoEffect or something similar); setMisc
  • readMiscRegWithEffect - same as above
