proc_card.dat -> pythia & delphes usage

Asked by sonus on 2018-02-12

Hello,

with mg5 v.2.5 i used my proc_card very well.
But with v 2.6.1 it's not working! Developer team probably changed the usage of pythia and delphes in proc_card:

my old proc card includes:

        shower = PYTHIA8
        delphes = ON
        analysis = OFF

But now, it is not working.

     I changed shower=PYTHIA8 to shower=Pythia8
     Pythia8 works now but Delphes works just in run_1.
     when mg5 does run_2 Delphes changes to PGS or OFF.

What is the usage ? Can you please help me?
Thank you.

Hi,

That's just a bug introduced in 2.6.1 and which will be solved in 2.6.2.
A patch is available on another thread. But since I'm in holiday with very limited internet connection I
can not link it here now.

Cheers,

Olivier
