This is a semi-complete list of weird images in IBM PC set. There are 4 categories:
REDUMP - Titles must be redumped.
TRUSTEDME - Titles with mastering errors coming from trusted dumpers (you know what I mean)
HARD - Weird mastering errors. All share a same pattern so it's very unlikely they are bad (weird track mode byte).
VALID - Images with weird stuff. Proper ones.

The obvious corrupted ones are the ones from REDUMP group.
