input.genomeSize affects calls GenomeSRiP calls?

I am wondering if the parameter input.genomeSize in the config file affects the CNV calls. I am trying to make calls on chromosome 22, at the beginning I set input.genomeSize=51304566, the program complains that there is no data (or the data is empty something like that). This value contains all the Ns in the chromosome 22. Then I set the input.genomeSize=34894566 (which copied somewhere on the internet). Then the program went through. I did not change anything else (except input.genomeSizeMale and input.genomeSizeFemale were set accordingly).

Does this parameter really affect the calls? And I want to make calls by chromosome, I have to prepare a config file for each chromsome?
