There is large deviations of real temperations from target temperatures.
I used following options for REMD:
 &cntrl
    imin = 0, irest = 0, ntx = 1, nstlim = 250, dt = 0.001,
    ntt = 3, gamma_ln = 1.0, ig = -1,
    tempi = 0.0, temp0 = 261.6,
    ntc = 2, ntf = 2, tol = 0.00001, ntb = 0, ntr = 0,
    ntwx = 250, ntwe = 0, ntwr =250, ntpr = 250, nscm = 1000,
    igb=5, gbsa=1, cut = 999., rgbmax = 999.,
    numexchg=40000,
 /

Should I set gamma_ln to 4.0, so it is synchronous with nstlim=250 and dt=0.0001?
