Ever since Pets, anyone who has either Holiday Pack or Edition (both the 2005 and 2006) ones, and is playing in UK English (the 24-hour clock), has two "Throw Party" menus on the phones:
One for all standard parties, and one for the "New Year's Bash".

The cause is a typo in the Party Pack override package: EA used the ellipsis character "…" instead of three dots: "...".

By placing the attached mod in your game this error is corrected, and you will only have one "Throw Party" menu again.

I found this by accident while I was working on another (as yet unreleased) mod.

Who needs it?
Only people who have and Pets or Seasons, and a Holiday Party Pack or a Holiday Edition of The Sims 2 need it.
Additionally, they must be playing in UK English (have a 24-hour clock). This mod will be rolled into my User Interface mod: UK English corrections so if you get the updated version of that, you can skip this mod.

There are two downloads here.
*PetsHPPMenuFix.zip is just the bugfix. Try this first, place it in your downloads folder. If it doesn't work, get:
*HolidayNewYearsPartyPhoneCall_Override.zip -- place this in XP4-Pets\TSData\Res\Overrides where "XP4-Pets" is your Pets install folder. Overwrite the existing file.

If you have Seasons, place it in XP5-Seasons\TSData\Res\Overrides instead. Again, backup the original.
