I teach game desing using Pico-8, and we ran into a lot of problems with version mismatches, the well known "future version" nag.
Can this check be removed? Worst scenario is that a game throws an error on a non supported command, which is 0.0001% chance of happening with the basic stuff students create.

Unfortunately not. It is rolled out in school on hundreds of machines. Everytime a student works at home and the web editor has a new version, they get into trouble back at school.
Where to enter that command line thing? It gives an error: syntax error near "-"
In Terminal it says -bash: pico8: command not found
For now I let my map editor I use for grading write all .p8 files as version 25. That way they always work.
If one would manage to enter the command, will it change the config.txt? If so, what would it say after you enter the command?
On the Mac, I double click the app icon. Passing the argument to the app itself in Terminal is not working. So there it is: a feature request for the MAC version. Preferably in the config.txt or just throw it out completely and make it a warning instead of a conputer-says-no situation.
