Hi Elaine,

Many thanks for this. Unfortunately the files are too big to email them.  I'd be grateful if you and/or your colleagues could download them from the following link.


I'm using Chimera version 1.5.3 (build 33475).  My operating system is OSX 1.6.8 on a 2x2.93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon machine.

Many thanks in advance for all the help.

Also, I guess we would need both prmtop and trajectory, and I'm not sure if the approach above would let you attach both, so yet another possibility is to send email to chimera-bugs at cgl.ucsf.edu and attach both those files.  Please also mention your Chimera version and what kind of computer you are using (e.g. Windows, Mac ...).
