Abstract: The MEGA microlensing survey is introduced and several topics about variable stars in M31 are discussed. An adopted model population of semiregular (SR) variable stars in presented, and the efficiency to recover these stars in M31 in a specific example MEGA dataset is predicted. The period-flux amplitude relation of the Srs discovered by MEGA could be used to measure the inclination of the M31 disk.
