Something that I often want to to when I'm searching for a key is to backtrack through the levels to make sure that there isn't such a key elsewhere. However, the fact that you can only view one level in the minimap inhibits this.

So what I'd like is to be able to click on a minimap, and either view the current level or view a different level.

Yeah, I totally concur - having to actually replay rooms or whole levels to give people directions or help with a room is a total bummer... :(

Could we perhaps have the option of browsing all levels/rooms that have been visited in a save in their current state from the restore screen?

np: Bomb The Bass - Black River (Gui Borrato Remix) (Future Chaos Remixes)

Yes, I plan to add a feature to step through the different levels you've been to in the minimap or by some other mechanism both in the game and on the Restore Screen. I agree it's a bummer without that, and I'd like to speedily rectify the situation.

Is there a hotkey for the bigger map? Otherwise that would be good to include.

Maybe the best way would be to 'view all visited rooms' option that would act like the restore screen on DROD, but without the ablity to restore. And an option to view that room as it is with your current save, and prior to visiting. This would massively help H&S posts IMHO.
