Nonetheless there are some parameter files for bromine and iodine obtained from PyMOMO (http://www.pymomo.de/) that seem reasonable that, if you drop them into the right place in your Chimera distribution, should get your bromonaphthalene minimization to work.  For convenience, I've attached the files.  The "right place" is <your chimera installation>/lib/python2.7/site-packages/MMTK/Database/Atoms/ [on Windows or Linux] or Chimera.app/Contents/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/MMTK/Database/Atoms/ [on Mac].

They will be in the next release.
