Preloading sounds in resources vs actions


Does preloading a bunch of sounds by checking the box in the resources page affect the game loading time?

And if Instead, I preloaded them with actions at the begging of the time, would this cause the game to lag a bit while preloading the sounds?

And do you think I should preload them in parts as needed? Like some at the beginning of the scene, some when the gameplay starts etc…

I’m not concerned if the game is played on PC. But I’m not sure how this will affect the game if it’s played online.
