I'm not sure what you mean by:

Can you expand on where the perceived problems with geometry are occurring?

These amino groups SHOULD be planar in geometry, reflecting the aromatic nature of the heterocycles to which they are attached. However, FFTK seems intent on treating these aminos as tetrahedral in geometry. It seems that there should be a simple work around for this. Would anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed?
