Hi Norman,
    what would the phyiscal meaning of HMR be, if we keep all non-solvent bonds rigid anyway?

No, you should keep rigid bonds to all. What timestep do you use? Have you checked the PSF contains rescaled masses? (easy to see on hydrogen atoms having a mass of 3)
Im using it for all my simulation without any problems. Don't scale the water, only solute.

Hi Geo,
    When using HMR you need to apply rigidBonds to water only. The whole point of repartitioning masses is to reduce fast oscillations frequencies (of hydrogen bonds) you would not allow before due to rigidBonds and with HMR let them oscilliate less fast (which allows higher timestep).
Kind regards

Dear user, 
I’m using HMR for a protein with glycosilation (N-glycosilation), make HMR using function implement into psfgen 2.0, 
I’ve check rigth patch but when run md simulation (minimization, equlibration good), get error in rattle algorithm to an hydrogen atoms into atom N involved into glycosilation, as can fix it? 
Please help me!.
