II.2 How to generate the KiSThelP input file directly from Gamess output

After having created a new session (menu Session/New), run a new calculation using the menu Calculation/Atom,Molecule
(or Calculation/k / TST, or . . .) and select your gamess outputfile upon request.

Prior to that, you must run a frequency job to get all necessary data to be read next by KiSThelP. This can be done by
inserting the keyword ** RUNTYP=HESSIAN ** in the gamess $CONTRL input section.

A Gamess parser has been designed to analyze Gamess outputfiles up to release Gamess2018. More recent versions might be parsed, but without guarantees.

When comparing KiSThelP thermochemistry analysis with Gamess's one, caution:

All the data used by KiSThelP to get the thermochemistry results can be interactively changed directly from the KiSThelP graphical interface: Also, a scaling factor applied to vib. frequencies can applied through the KiSThelP graphical interface. Default value in KiSThelP is 1.0.
