 Thanks Dav, I extended the equivalence list by adding NP, NO to N and CX to
C* in parm99.dat. It does work.
But when I use the second method that creates the vdW parameters in my
frcmod file, I have to add the NP, NO,CX into addatomtypes{} in
leaprc.ff03 to make it work.
So I wonder why it is not necessary to add the NP, NO,CX into
leaprc.ff03when using the first method. To my knowledge, it's only
using the vdW
parameters equivelent to N and C, rather than adding the atom type.


These heme parameters were developed long before ff03. Basically,
