DJ Custom Mix Fixes

Restores missing play and license options for Party Hardy custom DJ mixes, adds the ability to use Get Hyped and Feel the Crowd while performing custom mixes and fixes a bug preventing resuming incomplete custom mixtapes.

Bug

Party Hardy Custom Mixes: when creating a Party Hardy custom mix on the DJ booth, the song appears to disappear after completing the mixtape.

Get Hyped and Feel the Crowd: when you reach a high enough level in DJ skill, you’re able to hype up the crowd and give them emotional moodlets while performing regular music styles, but not when playing your own custom mixes.

Resume writing a custom mixtape: when attempting to resume a custom mixtape that isn’t finished, the option to resume may be greyed out, stating that a DJ booth is not available on the lot, even when one is present.

Fix

Party Hardy Custom Mixes: when choosing to play custom mixes on the DJ booth, or choose a custom mix for licensing on the mailbox, the game checks against a list of valid styles of music. All of the custom mix types are on the list except for Party Hardy, which is inexplicably missing. This fix adds Party Hardy to the list and restores the missing options.

Get Hyped and Feel the Crowd: added the abilities to use Get Hyped and Feel the Crowd while playing custom written mixes on the DJ booth.

Resume writing a custom mixtape: there seems to be something wrong with the test the game uses to determine if there’s a working DJ booth on the lot. Switched to a different set of tests which seem to work, allowing the resume option to be used on partially complete custom mixtapes.
