[SOLVED] Some native linux Steam games has no sound

I have an up-to-date Arch64 and I installed Steam Linux from the multilib repository, it's version is: steam 1.0.0.43-1. I have a couple of native Linux games purchased, and some of them does not have sound. Others does though... and needless to say, I have no other sound problems at all on my system.

Games having flawless sound:
- The Cave
- FTL: Faster Than Light
- Prison Architect

Games having no sound:
- Shadowrun Returns
- Monaco (it even crashes on start but runs fine WITH sound when started from the command line without steam)

I found several references of problems with Steam Linux and pulseaudio but killing it or killing and restarting the pulseaudio process did not help in either case. Any ideas or hints to try?

After a couple of hours of playing around, installing the package lib32-alsa-plugins has solved this issue for me (it has the pulse plugins for 32 bits as it seems). Hope it helps someone..

solution of these posts did not help me play in the EU IV on x64 : (

The correct solutions is:
    1) you can run gre using an executable file that is in the game directory (but wtecy not work achievements and all system IronMode - that is, just like you would a pirate fired)
   2) you can fire up the steam with system libraries (you first need to install!) - "$ env STEAM_RUNTIME = 0 steam"
   3) You can use libraries of steam, but to use the sound libraries of system (most ease way), - "$ env SDL_AUDIODRIVER = alsa steam"
