You have to use VMD 1.6 or earlier to get the correct colours.  
Starting from VMD 1.7, the colour handling was changed, and with it  
the specification of colours in VMD scripts. It is no longer possible  
to specify arbitrary colours as RGB values, only a set of predefined  
colours can be accessed by name or by colour index.
