The Morphy game is by Riccardo Tesio, it's in the gamebase.

I think this is an error. Ermanno himself sent the game for review a few years ago.

My Italian is kind of rusty.  Anyone care to translate into English?

Well I'll be damned! I will make sure to change the credits on the TI Gameshelf site. Thank you for catching this. I wonder why Ermanno never gave the credit to Tesio. Hmmm...

Update: Credit correction completed

Sorry for the newbie question, but did anyone ever expand the scratchpad area with more static RAM or is this impossible due to the architecture?

Some of the memory expansions expanded it from 256 bytes to 1024 bytes, see http://atariage.com/...e/#entry2658737

but I doubt that any software has been written to take advantage of the extra RAM. However, it would have been great if 1K was the standard in the console.

Thank you Vorticon for posting this. I thought it would be wise to make a cross-post here so that it does not got lost in history

In case anyone else has trouble with the code, line number 250 from post #23 should read:
