X-Y Alignment Information
X alignment shifts the Horizonal starting point for displaying the texture. This is used to make the texture display seamless or to make a special effect.
Y alignment shifts the Vertical starting point for displaying the texture. This is used to make the texture display seamless or to make a special effect.
A common example of Y alignment is for switches. Use the Interactive Texture Alignment to see how the texture will display in the game.
DeePsea provides three ways of aligning textures. All methods interactively display the textures with the alignments applied on the screen. This is ITA or Interactive Texture Alignment.

Itís quickest to use the X/Y alignment tools first and then use the ingame feature to make final adjustments.
