Hi,

To start with, in your "modpar" file you set the force constant of

Cd-S(...) bond(s) to 0.00, so no wonder you got such big 'deviations'

[look for the physical meaning of each term of the force-field formula

in the literature]. Besides, I don't see any entry in the "modpar" for

bond angles or dihedrals around the CAD atom. So, did you really set a

formal bond between the cadmium and the sulfur(s) in your topology

file?!? [if you did, the program should complain about the absence of

the angle and dihedral terms...]
