You can read two buttons of a megadrive pad without modifications. Technically it will be drawing a small amount of power from a signal pin rather than the power pin to run its multiplexing electronics, but in practice that's harmless. You do need to swap pins 5 and 7 in order to have control over the button multiplexing.
