I'm wanting to start an N64 portable but I'm missing these 2 parts. Does anyone know where I could get them? I know they are no longer sold on the store and they aren't open sourced.

The 64AMP is opensource on Gunnar's github. As for the N64PMS, you can do what I did and modify the opensource RVL-PMS into an N64PMS (just cut off the top of the board and rearrange some pads)

Have you got a link to Gunnar's Github? I can't seem to find anything under the user 'Gunnar' on Github?

It's time for me to learn how to edit circuit boards then. I have never done any circuit design before. I'm excited to try and learn though. If I have any questions I'll be sure to reach out

Looking at your board compared to the RVL-PMS, it looks like you just removed the 1v, 1.5v, and 1.8v lines is that right? Then moved the vsys and r, g, b pads?

I figured out some of the issues that I was having earlier. I think I have made a usable version of the PMS for the N64. There are a few adjustments I need to make still as I learn how to do them in KiCad. I'm getting quite a few warnings when I run DRC. The silkscreen also needs to be updated.

Made a few more adjustments and I think that the board is ready!

I decided not to update the silkscreen just so I can keep track of the parts compared to the BOM in the repository. Plus I'm lazy and I don't know a quick way to redo all the labels. :P
