However, after some thinking I've come to the conclusion that there's no point in continuing.
I don't have any PAL games apart from SM64, and with Everdrive 64 my NTSC N64 will boot anything I'll throw at it.
There's simply no need for stuff this complicated.
I think something based on ATTiny would be much better. After all, all it needs to do is just to read the reset button on power on and switch the clock synthesizer and video encoder to PAL/NTSC accordingly.
Well, it's been a while.
The new board revision works fine. The console actually boots properly, with controllers and controller paks working just fine. The DualPIF PCB itself fits quite nicely inside the metal shield.
Here I should probably say that all that's left is to write the firmware and get the NTSC PIF soldered to the DualPIF PCB.
Got the adapters yesterday.
That's basically the only nice thing about them.
Castellated holes turned out to be a pretty bad idea. No matter how clean the soldering is, I'm getting shorts between neighbouring half-holes. I guess I should've gone with plated holes of a larger diameter instead.

Just finished installing RGB amplifier by borti4938/VideoGamePerfection into my NTSC-J N64.
Really happy with the quality. It looks much better than RGB from my N64RGB-modded PAL N64.
