    OnlineVideos and Games Theme
    This is a theme/mod for the excellent Apollo skin and it comes with two OnlineVideos tab layouts and one Games tab layout that replaces the TV tab if enabled.

    Latest version v1.1.1.0
    ApolloOnlineVideos.and.Games.Theme_v1.1.1.0.mpe1

    Modes/Layouts
    The OnlineVideos tab comes in two different modes, Normal and Alternative. Configure in OnlineVideosThemeSettings.xml set the value #ovtheme.alt.mode to True for alternative mode. You can also enable Games mode that replaces the livetv tab. Set the value of #ovtheme.games.mode to True for games mode

    The alternative mode uses site icons for six of the sites -> no special tiles are necessary!

    Updated the mod. Introduced a Alternative mode where you can more sites to BasicHome + six of the sites in the alternative mode uses site icons, hence no special tiles are needed!

    See first post for updated info.

    I've not looked at it; I don't know how much work out is. I thought about using darkness as base for the mod but I think I like the old look more.
