Chime Plugin

In order to view these pages you need to use the plugin Chemscape Chime from MDL. There are two versions of Chime; only version 2.0 and higher will work correctly with this site. Version 1.0 will work, but some display features will not be availible. Increase the amount of memory allocated to your web browser in order to use the Chime plugin. I reccomend at least doubling the standard amount of RAM allocated to the application.

Chime 2.0
This new version of Chime works well. The only problems that I have encountered are memory limitations with Navigator (I haven't tried IE yet). I recommend doubling the amount of RAM allocated to the web brower. Chime 2.0 supports only PowerPC Macintoshes and Windows 95/98/NT4.0. The homepage for Chime at MDL contains links for download, FAQ, and basic support. There is also a Chime page at the Rasmol Homepage maintained by Eric Martz.

Chime 1.02
This version of Chime will render the structures correctly, but some of the display options will not work correctly. MDL reccomends using Netscape Navigator 3.01 with Chime 1.02 on both Macintosh and Windows 95. I have used the Macintosh version of Navigator 3.04 and had few problems with it and Chime 1.02.
