>There is no way to change that value as it is correctly calculated in the code from the mass of the mother and the two daughters.
That's a pity that those values cannot be modified. In fact, in this region of the chart very few masses have been measured. Actually, it's the other way round: often masses are derived from the alpha energies. So, assuming the masses are correct in order to calculate the energies is the opposite to how they were constructed and does not allow for more accurate alpha energies to be used in simulations of current experiments.
I wonder what would be the best way to go around this problem and modify the alpha energies? One of my ideas is to try and change the in-coded masses so that they would give the correct alpha energies. Is it possible to get access to those? (and how?)
