So after a day of struggling to work out what to do, mainly due to a friend giving me the Raspberry Pi Zero version of the software rather than the RPi3 version. I finally got it working, it works fine playing carts that I download from the website, but it appears to have issues connecting to the BBS, even though I can get network access and update the New, featured, and other pages, when it comes to playing the game it gives me the "Cannot connect to BBS."
Is it just because the bare metal version of Pico8 can't fully get network access? I heard that the creator of the software died a few years back which is a huge shame, in fact, I had to use the Wayback Machine to trace the RPi3 version of the bare metal PicoPi. If the bare metal version isn't meant to have internet access, I can understand, though it is odd that I can view lists of games that are online, but I can't play them, I just wish there was a means to make it work just the way it does on a typical desktop OS.
I'm using ethernet, that's how I'm getting the carts to appear after updating the lists, but the games themselves don't start because it can't connect to the BBS. It might be something odd with my network, so I'll reboot my router and see if that fixes anything.
