Here's a real interesting fact about the Wondermega, it has a couple of undocumented BIOS functions that are only present in it (WONDERREQ and WONDERCHK). I don't really know what they do myself, but @LazloPsylus probably does.
Yeah... I have documentation on it somewhere in my archives. I'll see what I can dig out. It's a bizarre bit of modifications. One is basically just a confirmation of whether the system is a Wondermega or not.
Another interesting thing about the Wondermega is that it has a MIDI-out jack on the back. What exactly it's for, I don't recall, but I remember someone was messing with the MIDI functionality on the Sonic Retro forums a while back.

Edit: Got ninja'd by Rivet. Disregard my post.
