[TCML] Tesla Map "unable to tune"

Between the Teslamap program and Gary Lau's pages I've almost got the
answers I need.
I keep getting "unable to tune" in TeslaMap however.
It tells me that 2 strings of 6 caps are "a bit large". I need 12kV to
match the NST, so it would seem sensible to do 2 strings of 6 (12 caps
in the parts kit).
According to the MMC calculator this is a cap value of 50nF, and for a
static spark gap I should have something around 10nF...
Any thoughts on these numbers?

Javatc is a free download. On the Javatc page near the top is the link
to download the program so you can run it from your computer without the
internet. Here's a direct link (same thing that would be on a cd).

got some great help from the good Dr. last night & I think I got it
figured out.? I'll have to work with it some more to confirm that I
really do "got it."? But I gotta tell you, this is an incredible
program.? If you would like to sell a disk with the program on it, I
would be more than glad to kick in?some bucks to help defray your costs
& time in putting this together.? Just let me know how much.? Thank you
for making this awesome tool available to us.? Dennis Hopkinton MA
