How to generate daily weather for CMIP6 AR6 data?

Greetings to all the researchers around the world!
I have a few queries regarding climate change modeling. Any info regarding this would be highly appreciated.
  1. A few weather generators are widely used to generate daily weather data from monthly data. WGEN and MARKSIM are two of those. But as I recently found, WGEN is no more operational. The problem I am getting with MARKSIM is stated below. But before that, is there any other weather generator for the same purpose mentioned above?
2. As far as I understood, the MARKSIM version 1.1 asks for the .clx file to be given as input. I found the web link where I can generate the .clx file. I am providing the link below.
Is there any other option to generate the .clx file?
3. In the above link, data for IPCC AR5 can be provided. Is there any weather generator that is capable of working with AR6 datasets?
Please help. I really appreciate any help you can provide.

LARS-WG is another weather generator and in many previous studies, researchers used it to simulate weather for the future based on CMIP6 or CMIP5.
This paper and related papers
were used LARS-WG to generate the weather.
