I was thinking about this on my birthday when I showed my friend Princess Rescue and Stay Frosty 2 on my 7800. We used a Genesis 6 button controller.

I do not have an adapter for the Genesis controller. Should that be working? Shouldn't I need the adapter? Or is it working because it is a 2600 game?

Genesis controllers work on ataris 2600 7800 xe/xl/xegs. Always have just 2 button 7800 function will not work.

So the seagull adapter makes it where I can use it for 7800 games then right?

Yes. With Eddladin adapter I have two buttons available on my genesis / mega drive controller for all 7800 games.

In my opinion, considering stock 7800 controllers ergonomics, genesis plus Eddladin adapter is my default option.

Kind of related, if you open a Genesis pad and cut a specific wire, it will work with the Power Base Converter.

A couple of SpiceWare homebrews were specifically programmed to recognize a second button on the Genesis controller on the 2600, no adapter needed. Every two button 7800 game will work with the Genesis controller on the 7800 with a Seagull78 adapter.

and if you have a Genesis Model 2 or JVC X'Eye and use a Power Base Mini from Stone Age Gamer, your stock Genesis controllers will work fine on all SMS games!
