How do I light my level?
If you right click, and scroll down you will see an option for lights. Hitting the default “K” button will bring up an option to allow you to edit the color.
You can also use the following key/value combos “Light/X” where X is the strength of the light (300 is default) You should be able to look over the key list yourself by hitting the N key.

How do I make a spotlight?
Follow the above steps, but now, put an info_null on the wall/floor you want your spotlight to go to, now select both the info_null and the light and hit control + k, you will now see a line connecting the two. “Radius/X” where X is the radius of the light, 64 is default will change the radius of your spotlight.
Load up your map, if it’s not working, I seem to have issues if they are too far apart, so just get them a little closer together.

the problem, when i play my map, the spot lights don't show up. Also, i noticed if you select null then light then ctrl-k the arrow points at the light, when you select light then null and ctrl-k the arrow points at the null, what be the difference?

If you're pointing the null at the light, it won't work - that's what. :p

Which was quite straightforwardly stated in my Basic Lighting tutorial, by the way. ;)
