Unless I've misunderstood you, all you have to do is find the maximum
value (perhaps 2.33, based on your email) and divide all the numbers (in
all PDB files) by this number. You can write a simple Perl/Python
program to do this or, if you're careful to get everything imported and
exported correctly, use a spreadsheet program.
This should scale everything so that your largest overall value is 1.0
and all other values are less than this.
