Particle lights just won't work for me.

Hello there.

Maybe I’m doing something wrong, but I can’t seem to make particle lights work properly on my 4.24.1.

I think I’m doing it the same way as here https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/Engine/Rendering/ParticleSystems/ParticleLights/index.html but it just does not bring any lights into place.

what do I do step by step:

  1. create stock CPU particle emitter
  2. change particle material (optional - does not work regardless of this step)
  3. add lights module with stock settings

et voila, plain nothing happens.

doublechecked within editor play and maximized light radius and brightness values, just plain nothing.

Tried everything I managed to find, including changing bounds, and even uninstalled 4.23 in order to get 4.24.
Any ideas?
