To everyone who wished me and my family well condolences in the wake of my Nana's death today, I send deepest thanks. She was the last of my grandparents left alive and she'll no longer suffer, but it still is awfully sad. The support is highly appreciated.
Between Community's Cut and the 2013 remake decompilation, I can't decide which one I'd consider the definitive version of Sonic 2.
One one hand, CX has tons of options and some great additions like the drop dash and act transitions, but has a bit of input lag since it's basically emulation, is missing Hidden Palace and the special stages look really bad.
On the other hand, 2013 has Hidden Palace and remade special stages, plus the two boss rush stages, but I find myself missing a lot of CX's features, especially the drop dash.
I think if you could somehow bring over most of Community's Cut's additions to the 2013 version, that would be perfect.
