The part of the output you quote contains two separate errors.
> colvars: can't read "extendedFluctuation": no such variable
This is actually a Tcl error meaning that some code is trying to access a
Tcl variable with that name. That is a little surprising, I'd like to see
the input that gave that. Can you send the NAMD config file and any colvars
And yes, semi-eABF is applicable when at least one variable provides the
total force and Jacobian derivative needed for standard ABF. I documented
semi-eABF for the sake of completeness, but it is not entirely clear how
useful it is in practice. The final answer would come from real-world tests
on a large, slow system.
