Quake Mapping: Colored Lighting

Working on some colored lighting in a map. I had been tinkering around with the Arcane Dimensions stuff, and left those settings on when I originally setup the lights. My lights look really good in AD. Later, when playing the map in Quakespasm with no mod, I noticed the colored lights are pretty crappy by comparison, and I'm not sure if its a matter of settings or if Arcane Dimensions just had a different lighting setup than Quakespasm can do on its own. I feel like there's a setting I'm missing or something, perhaps a rendering setting in the engine I need set in the config?

Bonus Question: Does Arcane Dimensions mod always use the new health and ammo models or is there a way to tell it (in map settings) to use the classic models?

Re: Quake Mapping: Colored Lighting

Thank you dwere! You have saved me. That was it.

I dunno how that got set to zero in my id1 config, but that's what it was. Much appreciated. It was driving me crazy because the lighting looked right on my laptop and also when I would use the -game setting with any mod folder. Now it all makes sense.
