Dear Francesca,

I think time intervals assigned by DCYTIMES starts from the last NONZERO
irradiation interval defined by IRRPROFI. So, if your second IRRPROFI
interval is 1 proton instead of 0 you should get the same results in both
examples. However, there was another potential problem with your input
files: when filtering a scoring card using AUXSCORE, even though default
is filtering by all particles according to the manual, I found that
actually indicating 201.0 (ALL-PART) made difference.
I hope this helps.
