If I have a simple node setup like the following: enter image description here Then when I render it looks like this: enter image description here Whereas if I disconnect the bottom node path (with the color ramp), it looks normal again, but the flames don't render. enter image description here

Your material lights up the entire Smoke / Fire domain instead of just the flame part.
