Players and tribes are saved into the server files, so I have been running off seperate file sets. I think there is a launch option to specify a folder to save files.

I cant get my server to work either. I have 3GB of RAM. That might be the issue?

when I use 1 setup, I can login to the server, but when I load up a character, it falls into the water and dies instantly! If I try other configs, the server will either crash/freeze or not show up on the server list. If anybody can help me out, that would me much appreciated!

Well since the game uses almost 5 gigs at startup and you need RAM for the OS, I would say yeah, 3 gigs is not nearly enough. You should consider at least doubling that.

Yeah for sure. Our 70 man has been packed for the most part and we sit around 5.56gigs all day on average.
