[Chimera-users] Delphi electrostatic potential visualization

My name is Joshua Broyde, and I am a big fan of Chimera. I have recently been using Chimera to visualize Delphi outputs (i.e. .phi files).As per your advice here: http://plato.cgl.ucsf.edu/pipermail/chimera-users/2006-March/000710.html I have been using Delphi itself and visualizing the output in Chimera, rather than using the DelphiController within Chimera.
Chimera seems to not consistently be able to visualize the output of Delphi on the surface of the proteins. After coloring 2 different protein models with the delphi electrostatic output, I tried to color the third protein surface I was examining with the Delphi output, and Chimera simply colored it gray. To double check that this was not a Delphi problem, I then took this protein structure and created a separate chimera session with it, and then Chimera was able to visualize the Delphi output on the protein surface. Is this a bug or something? Is there a way around this? I want to be able to visualize many Delphi outputs at once on Chimera.

Thanks so much, you guys are great!
