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

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?
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.

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