Also, should you have any editing questions in the future, you're likely to get better/faster responses by posting them in the Doom Editing section. That's where the experts hang out.

Those are called obituaries.

 

You need to make a DEHACKED lump if you're looking to make obituaries for the standard enemies.

 

If you're making a new monster, you'll need to use DECORATE.

I use Whacked4 with a basic .bex file to discover how to make changes to the strings, frames & thing stats within a dehacked file included in a WAD. I make changes to the .bex file, save it, then I open it with the notepad to see how things work out.

looking through freedoom's dehacked I found it uses the same dehacked that I posted and it didn't work for me so now I'm just confused but it doesn't really matter lol

It doesnt truly matter, its a single map and not a mega wad. I can simply inform downloaders that the new enemies are not called AlphaSouls or Nazis, theyre Called PATES. (as in, it rhymes with DATES)

You can use a LANGUAGE lump to change those strings if DEHACKED doesn't work. It won't prevent the mod from working just fine in vanilla; these obituary strings are ZDoom-exclusive anyway.

 

[default]
OB_WOLFSS = "%o met a pate"

That's because you didn't add [STRINGS] on your DeHackEd lump before making custom obituaries.

[STRINGS]

OB_WOLFSS = "%o was murdered by pate"

Here's a neat list of all strings that can be changed inside a DeHackEd lump, also you may need to read the section of obituaries in the zdoom wiki page of actor properties, so you can do more than just change the name of an enemy.
