I can't really tell a difference. But the first three wheels I built were GSport so I guess I'm used to it haha.

Well G-Sport rims ARE cross laced & a little different than traditionally laced rims. I did find mine were a bit harder than most other rims but I'm not sure if that was the rim itself or just the cross lacing.

I have only laced cinema rims always with the same spokes, like 4 or 5 times, and all were the same.

Lacing is lacing, I don't see a difference unless you're using spokes of the wrong size, either too long or too short. Too long and you gotta really bend the spoke around, and too short and you gotta pull the spoke so you can get the nipple on. Plus, I have to use the center of the opposite side from the valve hole on my Rollcage rim cause for some reason, if I lace it normally from the valve hole, there always ends up being a crossover. Thank god the sticker was on there like how most rims have the sticker directly opposite from the valve hole, otherwise I'd be going crazy right now from trying to pump up tires. It was absolute hell.

I always had trouble with stolen recolver wheels mainly because they are annoying to true.

I laced my very first double walled cross-laced rim, I find it hard because Im used to lace old single walled rims.

I always start at the valve hole for lacing so I never have that issue.
