#1422 new Bug

Detector card overwrites after adding trigger card

Description

Hi,
I use Delphes with MadGraph5. I want to replace default detector and trigger cards with corresponding ATLAS cards. For that I type path to each card and it seems that replacing was successful, but actually after typing path to trigger card it replaces the detector card.
What am I doing wrong?

The following switches determine which programs are run:
/================ Description =================|=========== values ===========| other options =\
| 1. Choose the shower/hadronization program | shower = Pythia8 | OFF |
| 2. Choose the detector simulation program | detector = Delphes | OFF |
| 3. Choose an analysis package (plot/convert) | analysis = ExRoot? | OFF |
| 4. Decay onshell particles | madspin = OFF | ON|onshell |
| 5. Add weights to events for new hypp. | reweight = OFF | ON |
\==============================================================================================/
Either type the switch number (1 to 5) to change its setting,
Set any switch explicitly (e.g. type 'shower=OFF' at the prompt)
Type 'help' for the list of all valid option
Type '0', 'auto', 'done' or just press enter when you are done.

/------------------------------------------------------------\
| 1. param : param_card.dat |
| 2. run : run_card.dat |
| 3. pythia8 : pythia8_card.dat |
| 4. delphes : delphes_card.dat |
\------------------------------------------------------------/

you can also

  • enter the path to a valid card or banner.
  • use the 'set' command to modify a parameter directly. The set option works only for param_card and run_card. Type 'help set' for more information on this command.
  • call an external program (ASperGE/MadWidth/...). Type 'help' for the list of available command

As it is MadGraph? that manages the cards, this question should be addressed to the developers of MadGraph?.

I can only suggest trying to run Delphes directly as explained in the Delphes documentation:
