That's pretty much where I left off testing/tuning; I left the depth and gap set to 0.8/0.2, turned on Join-Loop and started printing.

I also want to print only, but the results forced me to test.
I am used to the fact that when values are changed, at least one tendency can be seen.
So I test some more rounds. It would be something sobering that no better result
should be achieved.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, or my expectations are some way off.

Maybe someone is so kind and prints the tuning part (0.2 scaling in Z, 200m Layer, 3.5 Perim, Loop1> Perim, 0.6 Skin, 10% rounded infill) with hers/his settings
and insert some pics

I have to admit that I don't see a lot of changes too when I play with those parameters (even if I can see that the path is modified in KISS).

I am using 1.6.1.

How do I actually align the seams?

I tried changing the angle with and without the corners enabled. Jitter is 0, however KISS still tried to place the seams elsewhere sometimes...
it is getting very annoying.

You might check out my tutorial: Getting Loopy. It will address the questions you asked and probably a few you haven't!

One comment, once you've sliced I strongly advocate looking at the g-code preview to see how parameter changes change things.
