Not sure in right spot (sorry!)
When starting a new game in the advanced options tab what does the "starting cities" option do.
I know what historic does but what the difference between all capital and other and how do I tell them apart.

This is the right spot, no worries. The starting cities option changes whether or not independent versions of factions emerge: there's "historical start", where factions start with all their territory; "player capital only", where the player has their capital and the rest of their territory goes to an independent version of their faction; and there's "all capital only", where that happens to all factions, not just to the player.
