this is probably a simple thing but i just started using blender this week and made a particle system. the probleme i have now is that in material view the particles have the color they are supposed to but when i got to render view they are suddenly black. i've been looking around for the past 2 hours without finding anything and i've been trying to change settings i think it might be but nothing seems to work any help would be appreciated.
i'm using cycle render and there is also a spotlight shining straight on the particles
my material settings
the tutorial i partialy used for the particles
