EDIT 7/17/2014:
For those playing with the Ultimate Collection, this should work for you, as the UC uses the Fun with Pets collection. Just follow the instructions at the bottom of this post to install it.

So, if you're like me, and didn't buy M&G stuff pack (or many of the other stuff packs) when they were still in stores, you probably scrounged around at secondhand stores, Ebay, Amazon, etc. to complete your game and found out that, hey, it's cheaper to get the Fun with Pets collection in most cases. Or perhaps you're just a late comer to the Sims 2 and were able to buy all the collections. Either way, because M&G was paired in the Fun with Pets collection, you get this boring logo that greets you while your game loads.

Really boring. And, depending on how big your downloads folder is, you're going to be seeing this plain logo for awhile on the startup screen. So, I shifted through and replaced the boring collection logo at startup with M&G's.

Yeah, now it's pretty!

Please note, this is ONLY for those who are using M&G through the Fun with Pets collection. The reason for this is that the UI file came with the small M&G logo already, so I only included the large one at startup.

This does not go in your downloads folder. Instead, this is the path to use:
Programs Files/EA Games/latest expansion pack (not stuff pack)/TSData/Res/UI

so, for example, my latest EP is Apartment Life, so it goes in there, not in SP9's (which is what M&G is called under Fun with Pets folder).
