Hi,

the issue that you encounter in Case II is not really a bug. As
described in the wiki

https://github.com/FeynCalc/feyncalc/wiki/FeynArts#fa_plus_fc

there are functions (like FourVector or FeynAmpDenominator) that appear
both in FeynCalc in FeynArts but have completely different properties,
so that it is not possible to use two packages as the same time without
risking problems.

"Patching" of FeynArts just renames such functions by adding an "FA" in
front, so that now all the offending functions have different names and
no inconsistencies can occur. This way patched FeynArts can work with
FeynCalc without any problems.

However, if you want to use other packages that need FeynArts (like
FeynRules or FormCalc), then of course you need unpatched FeynArts (your
case I, FeynArts loaded via <<FeynArts`). The patched one has many
important functions renamed, so that other packages cannot work properly
anymore.

I would suggest that you use unpatched FeynArts + FeynRules on a
separate Mathematica kernel, then save the results and load them into
the FeynCalc session, where you can process them further.

Cheers,
Vladyslav
