OK, but you still need to be seen to be applying your own
troubleshooting skills. If something doesn't work, try some
Also, learn the lesson that if you don't have someone locally who is
useful to ask for basic help, don't take on the project!

Position restraints aren't magic. If the other forces on your protein
are stronger then they'll overrule them. If they are very large, then
you have a serious problem with your structure, or your model physics
(i.e. the contents of your .itp files). To find out where the problem is
coming from, you need to simplify your problem. Remove an element and
see how things work differently. So try not using inflategro.pl, or
changing its settings, or not using both your proteins, or not using any
proteins, or not using position restraints.
I don't think you've ever mentioned where you got the contents of your
.itp files from. If your structure after inflategro.pl is fine, and it's
not after you apply some physics to it, then your physics is broken. We
can't help more than that without a lot more information.
