Hello Youngboem,

it would be useful to include the band structure plots from your attempts. 
Otherwise it is hard to guess what went wrong.

Also, before plotting, it will be helpful to look at a part of the output that 
contains the Bloch spectrum weights for the conduction band maximum and the 
valence band minimum.

Fold2Boch runs in two modes complex (default) and real. In case your 2x2x2 
supercell has the inversion symmetry (check structure file for a diagonal 
matrix with -1), you will need to activate the real version.


Thank you
Oleg
