Honestly, the reason is that it would be a full-time job in-and-of-itself keeping track of all the external dependencies for something as complicated as VMD.

For your purpose, it would be fine to just use QwikMD as-is. CHARMM36m has the exact same topology as CHARMM36, so you will only need to modify your NAMD configuration files before running to point to the new parameter file.

Subject: vmd-l: VMD charmm paramters files: par_all36m_prot.prm

Hi all,

is there a specific reason why the modified version of `par_all36_prot.prm`

from 2016 naming `par_all36m_prot.prm` is not present in any vmd plugin dir?


I would like to setup a new protein system with QwikMD using this one and ask before wasting time adapting any tcl code.

Kind regards
