Use IDEA For Command Line SVN Merge/Diff Conflict Resolve

EDIT: I got it to work after writing this post. But I thought I would post anyway as a reference for future. I was using $ instead of % in my bat!
I still can't get it to work with the subversion config though.

This suggests that I can use IDEA as an external diff:

I can't get it to work with SVN though (pressing the letter l from the command line when there is a conflict) .

I have SVN 1.7 installed and I am calling it from msysgit bash.

I have tried modifying $HOME/.subversion/config and %APPDATA%\Subversion\config and setting SVN_MERGE env variable but no luck.

The config doesn't get called when I modify it with

### Set merge-tool-cmd to the command used to invoke your external
### merging tool of choice. Subversion will pass 4 arguments to   
### the specified command: base theirs mine merged
# merge-tool-cmd = merge_command

The SVN_MERGE works but all it does is open IDEA.
I have tried creating a bat file and setting that as the env variable.
It contains the following:

cd C:\tools\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition 126.232\bin
idea.exe merge %1 %2 %3 %4

Is there a proper way to do this?
Can you add this to the help example

OK. I'm following up with a proper question now.
The merge window opens up but it doesn't have any of the arrows to do the actual merge!

It shows me the conflict and the diffs in the three way merge but I can't resolve it!
