Once again about XMCQDPT

Dear Friends.

I am trying to model 1st and 2nd excited state of a molecule. From experiments are known, excited state is double degenerated (E - orbitals). Also, it is known from experiment and from a theoretical study either TD-DFT or CIS that first excited state forms by HOMO->LUMO transition, while 2nd excited state  forms HOMO-1->LUMO transition. From TD-DFT and CIS we have 2 excitation (double degenerated LUMO) HOMO->LUMO (1st excited state) and two transition HOMO-1->LUMO.

My goal is to calculate excitation energies and to study excited state. So i am using XMCQDPT approach.

I did CASSCF(4,4)/6-311G(d,p) calculations with 6 states (ntrack=5) and different wstate(1) array value. First excited state corresponds to ground state (only biggest coefficients are printed):
STATE #    1  ENERGY =   -1727.128479778

     CSF      COEF    OCCUPANCY (IGNORING CORE)

       1    0.964072  2200

.................
       4   -0.151002  2002

.................
       9    0.137168  1111

.................
      15   -0.150937  2020

.................

Second excited state has following configuration and corresponds to excitation from HOMO->LUMO. However, component from HOMO-1->LUMO also significantly contribute to formation of the second.
STATE #    2  ENERGY =   -1726.991351175

     CSF      COEF    OCCUPANCY (IGNORING CORE)

....................
       2    0.942511  2101

....................
       8    0.261968  1210

....................
      13    0.136427  1012

....................
Third excited state has following configuration, very similar to the 2nd:
STATE #    3  ENERGY =   -1726.991351174

     CSF      COEF    OCCUPANCY (IGNORING CORE)

.......................
       3    0.261719  1201
.......................        

       7   -0.942700  2110
......................        

      10    0.129259  2011

.....................
      18   -0.137203  1021

....................

The states from 4th don't have single excitation configuration with big coefficients and they have not been presented here. I believe they are not important for our case.

Afterward, i ran XMCQDPT using
$xmcqdpt kstate(1)=1,1,1,1,0,0                                                

avecoe(1)=1,1,1,1,1,-0                                                        

wstate(1)=1,1,1,1,1,-0  $end    
$gugdm2 wstate(1)=1,1,1,1,1,0 $end

In $DRT group=c1.

I used different value for wstate(1) and wstate(1)=1,1,1,1,1,-0 works better. I don't know why.

After XMCQDPT run i got

From "EIGENVECTORS OF THE EFFECTIVE HAMILTONIAN" i can say we very close to correct results. But i don't know what to do next.

From experiment, first excited state has absorption at 565 nm (~17700 cm^-1).

Also, i have a question. That is a difference between
$xmcqdpt kstate(1)=1,1,1,0,0,0                                                

avecoe(1)=1,1,1,-0                                                        

wstate(1)=1,1,1,-0  $end    

and

$xmcqdpt kstate(1)=1,1,1,1,0,0                                                

avecoe(1)=1,1,1,-0                                                        

wstate(1)=1,1,1,-0  $end    

For 4th state in kstate array weight is 0.

Thank you very much for willing to help me.
