Default MapSplice2 gives error if the thread count (-p value) is greater than 2

Hello! I get a multi-threading error while using MapSplice2. All the reference fasta files and index files were generated accordingly, as mentioned in the website. (

I get an error after it evaluates given files/parameters but before starting Mapsplice-multithread when the thread count was -p55. Then I made it run by default which is -p 1. It was working. It also works for -p 2. More than 2 it does not work

But I want to run it on more number of threads for parallel aligning as it's taking so much time for default setting. Please help me out with this.

python2 software/MapSplice2/ -1 reads/file_1_trim.fastq -2 reads/file_2_trim.fastq --fusion -c mapsplice_fasta_files/ -x index_files/index -p 55 -o masplice_out
