When i try to put lights from the objects list, instead of a purple square thing the instructions described, a light bulb is appears, when i press ALT+Enter the properties come up but, when i am content with the color and i don't mess with the brightness i close the object properties and compile the map and play, but still no lights??? LOL I need help!

That is supposed to be that way.
Do you mean that you cannot see the light bulb in-game?

Is your problem
1) ...that you have no lights (a dark map)?
2) ...that you do not see the lightbulbs when you play your map?

OK. I see you said you changed the light's properties; did you change the brightness?
