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.
