Custom Monsters have no DECORATE file but ZSCRIPT

Question

Hi guys, I'm trying to make a custom wad for Doom 2 and added a few custom monsters in it.

Two of them won't show up in my DECORATE list in DoomBuilder2 they are named Overlord and Annihilator.

 

I searched up why they didn't appear in my decorate list and it's because they have no DECORATE file to begin with but have a ZSCRIPT file.

How do I make them appear in the decorate list then? or even add them in my maps?

Monsters downloaded from Realm667 that have ZScript will usually have a lump called OLDCODE, which is actually DECORATE.  I use that DECORATE code instead of ZScript to make my mod work in Zandronum, but it will also have the effect of making it work in DB2.  That said, Doom Builder X and GZDoom Builder Bugfix are better in many ways and still being maintained.

I had a problem with that when trying to add a Acolyte/Disciple, so I would like to know the fix you found because what I did didn't work.

Doom Builder 2 is outdated and cannot handle ZScript. Use GZDB or DBX instead.

But now I sucessfully converted my current maps into UDMF and work with GZDoombuilder now :)
