Recover Your Settings after the Merge

Hi guys!

There might be some more people out there with tons of characters who would like to get their chat and interface settings back after the merge.

The settings files for your characters lie here:
C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Local\SWTOR\swtor\settings

The file names begin with the server ID. Unfortunately BioWare did not migrate those files with a patch. So all your settings are still there but named with the old server IDs.

To get your settings back, just rename the files with the new server IDs:
he3001 - Satele
he3000 - Star Forge
he4000 - Malgus
he4001 - Tulak Hord
he4002 - Leviathan

Old server IDs (not quite sure about former east coast):
he1084 - Jedi Covenant
he1086 - Prophecy of the Five
he1093 - Shadowlands
he1098 - Ebon Hawk
he2000 - Bastion
he2002 - Harbinger
he6122 - ToFN
he6124 - TRE
he6127 - T3-M4
he6132 - Mantle of the Force

Please correct or add old IDs of your servers.

Cheers
