Thanks for previous replies Justin.
Since Im at the end of my PhD and the D-aa simulation is just an extra to the
PhD-project. I can keep the charmm36 D-aa files etc, if I need to continue this
so I have the old cmap parameters to match my old gmx. 5.0.4. charmm36-mars2014
Not sure if I can dig deeper to answer my next question, if it is something I
can solve myself I dont expect a reply.
The CMAP energy unit conversion from CHARMM to GMX, do not seem straightforward
to me, since the format is different, see below. Is there a script to do this

; multiple charmm parameter files
; and multiple charmm topology files

It doesn't seem straightforward to convert the charmm D-aa cmap parameters to
gmx cmap.itp format.
Can this program be used for this 'cgenff_charmm2gmx.py' at
I will consider putting it in. Note that we have an update to the CHARMM36
protein parameters (specifically CMAP) that is about to be published, so no
update will be posted until then (though the files, in CHARMM format, are
available, but we're waiting on the conversion until the reference is
available). The D-amino acid CMAP, however, has not been adjusted, but can
easily be converted.
In the meantime, you can certainly proceed with the existing files. The CMAP
conversion is just converting energy units. And a new DSER entry would just
require changing the CA type in the existing SER .rtp entry to create a new
