Notes

  • All Mega-Tech cabinets and cartridges are produced and distributed by Sega.
  • The Mega-Tech wasn't released in the USA;
  • Mega-Tech cartridges aren't compatible with Mega Drive cartridges and vice-versa, due to extra memory added for the info (displayed on the Top monitor);
  • The board isn't a JAMMA standard;
  • The Power Base Converter isn't needed for playing SMS games in the Mega-Tech machines;
  • Although some SMS games has support for the FM unit, the Mega-Tech has not;
  • SMS games run in the Japanese mode, displaying the Sega Mark III logo, but is unknown if this is true for all regions, or just a feature that MAME didn't has added on it;
  • All the SMS and MD games are exactly the same with their home console counterpart. Yeah, you can even enable the Debug Mode in Sonic 1/2;
