Yes, we really should make a difference.

I did some random samples and didn't find any virus file on there, but you may prove me wrong of course.
Until now i have checked all(really every single disk) TOSEC games disks beginning with letters P -Z and my experiences are, that most times the virus is really on disk, of course there are exceptions.

As I said, you may probably have encountered the Lamer v4.

That aside, if LAMER is responsible to block destruction, it should also be renamed [b LAMER] or sort of thing.
Because it might matter whether a block only contains LAMER! or whether it's just a byte that has to be switched so that the disk works again, respectively so that the block checksum is OK again.

Ok, maybe you are right, but i have different opinion, because
we should try to use general [b] descriptors, in this case "[b checksum error].
Let me try to explain.
In your example, you would prefer to use "[b Lamer]", by the way, we would create a new [b] descriptor, its not used in current Amiga games dat until now.
Also you could use "[b corrupt file]" or "[corrupt gfx]" and this causes
thousands of different descriptors for one and the same main error.
If we have a general solution, then the user knows, if he use a disk with
[b] flag, then its possible that he get problems with this disk.

...remember, its my own opinion.

I agree with mai, since the type of corruption is more important to know than the cause for it

I agree more to andreas, what caused the [b] flag is more important.
On the other hand you could also make it both [b LAMER checksum error], that would require a change in the TNC.pdf file where [b], [b Descriptor] should be changed to [b], [b reason damage].

Sorry, i have still different opinion.
I think its not a good idea to change TNC, the result would be to have much longer filenames.

i also think knowing what is bad is the important thing to know, looking at the set i would like to know if he was a bad dump and what was wrong with it, in this case crc errors, having lots of extra info is not always a great idea in my opinion :P

... and another small duo of extended ADFs renamed as "overdumps":

Terrorpods (1987)(Psygnosis)(M7)[o] (crc 0418CF96)
Tusker (1990)(System 3)[o] (crc 3D8B02D5)

The next IS an extended adf, but there is nothing indicating this:
Tusker (1990)(System 3)(crc E10486F8)

I suggest to DELETE the following two ones:

Trivia Game Show (1990)(Impressions)[h FLT][u][b](crc 7685D765)
53 KB packed; this is maybe a patch disk

Thomas the Tank Engine (1992)(Alternative)[cr QTX][t +2 Metal Force][u][b](crc 9F5F5BC1)
11264 bytes unpacked; this appears to be a trainer patch disk!!

Doesn't look broken to me at all: BUT it must be used as DMS and patched onto the QTX scene original using the DMS tool in overwrite/update mode!

isn't this a bit TOO small?
I think this one is likely to get appended a [ b], because it seems broken to me.

Definitely previously infected with the SADDAM virus, but not anymore.

let's hope so
well, just a little ADFCHK magic again
If you let these be scanned with ADFScan, each of them - except for "Emporos" - will be reported as "clean."

I never did any TOSEC renaming stuff but i found something and i hope its a small contribution to this correction thread.

While i was browsing through the Amiga Musicdisks (Letter A).
I found the following errors.

Amazing Amiga Tune 10 (19xx)(Switch).adf
(Has checksum errors) should have a [b] behind it?

All Time Greatest Hits 09 (1992)(Static Bytes)[KS2.0].adf
All Time Greatest Hits 10 (1992)(Static Bytes)[KS2.0].adf

These 2 work better in Kickstart 1.3. so it would be without the [KS2.0] label?

Amiga 500 Demo (19xx)(Commodore)(de).adf
Its not German language but Dutch so (de) changed into (nl)?
Also its not even a musicdisk, should be put into Slideshow folder?

Amiga Dynamics '92 (1992)(Pacific 202).adf
Read write error on 2nd song. [b] and also a virus on it (try with kick 3.0 to see virus message on bootblock).

Amiga Horror Show (1988)(Slammer).adf
2nd animation doesnt work [b] and not a musicdisk, move to "Animations and Videos"

Amigadeus II (19xx)(Rob Baxter)(Disk 1 of 2).adf
Amigadeus II (19xx)(Rob Baxter)(Disk 2 of 2).adf

Only works properly in Kickstart 2.0 or higher so [KS2.0] added?

Amplifier I, The (1991)(Dimension 4).adf
5th song crashes Amiga "menomono". Maybe a [b]

Amplifier II, The (1991)(Dimension 4)(Disk 1 of 2).adf
Amplifier II, The (1991)(Dimension 4)(Disk 2 of 2).adf

4th song crashes Amiga "House". Maybe a [b]

I will try to check every musicdisk, i hope i can help a bit this way.

If you plan to check every single disk in this dat, then you should ask, if you can apply the changes for yourself.
I am sure, every kind of help is welcome.
As i can see in your contributions, you have the ability to do a proper job.
Please go to TOSEC forum and ask about this:
