Description

Similarly to
https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/delphes/ticket/1151
I get ROOT files with weight=1 for each event. I was wondering if I can maintain the LHE event weight when going through Delphes.

It turns out my events were in STDHEP and had weight = 1. So Delphes is just keeping the weight from the input. I have verified it would even run on _weighted_ samples with different weights for each event.

If everything works as expected can we close this?

I think it's working as expected. Can be closed, sure.
