What are the difference in the rules in custom games ie. Chinese/Japanese/AGA etc

Im sure this has been asked before but Im finding the forum kinda hard to navigate. I’m specifically asking about “rules” drop down menu. Not the timing or the komi settings. So yeah, it doesnt seem to make much difference. What am I missing?

Never mind. I found a good explanation here for anyone else searching for the same thing

There was this old table comparing the different rules

I’m not exactly sure if it’s still up to date. The komi probably means 19x19 with no handicap, and the dame filling possibly doesn’t really apply since the players can agree to score with filled all the dame for example.

But in theory those are the differences though.
