Using the CHARMM36 forcefield with NAMD

I've recently downloaded the CHARMM36 force field to use with NAMD. I believe the 2 main files
are the "par_all36_prot.prm" file and the "top_all36_prot.rtf" file. Previously just adding the files using
the parameters field seemed to work but with the new v36 files this seems to result in NAMD crashing.
Any ideas what the issue is?
