Have you got a chance to try the latest Amber12 or AmberTool release?
It now supports both VMD and PyMol for potential visualization.

Anyway, I'm also forwarding your email to Qin to take a look ...

The question is that is it mandatory to neutralize and solvate the system before create prmtop and inpcrd file for electrostatic potential surface calculation in PBSA? When I do this with solvated structure then pbsa.phi is not generated.
