No sound playing Source games on Mac

I have no sound playing Source games. How can I fix this?

In Portal, do the following to try and fix your missing audio:

  • Open Steam > Library > Right click on the game you are having issues with
  • Click on Properties > Set Game Launch Options
  • Type -snd_openal
  •  Press Enter


This may cause some rare crashes with Portal
