I have achieved the bad ending and now see question marks over Forgotten Shrine, and when I browse that level from the restore option I see that I have conquered 66% of a 2 room level, and that I have conquered 0/1 secrets.

Putting my mathematics degree to good use, I infer that there is one secret room I need to find .....

When I activate the tuning fork in this room, I see a tunnel that appears in the west, but I can never get to explore that because the cut scene drags me out to see A1.

How can I get to the tunnel?

Firstly, mastering TSS (or any hold) works as it always has done: you can restore freely to pick off secret rooms one by one. But all unlockable content, including unlocking the good ending, must be done within a single save. Fortunately, the map system makes this easy, and there is nothing essential in the levels you can't go back to.

Returning to Forgotten Shrine via the map should get around the cut scene problem.

However...

Thanks Nuntar, entering Forgotten Shrine directly from the map, rather than from the restore screens allowed me to explore freely ... although I kinda wish I hadn't found that room!

The general topic of not using restore is important and general for TSS, so I carried on KevG's thread on the General board.

So, is it correct that you cannot actually get to the secret room UNTIL you have access to the world map, and that there is thus no point in trying to get to it when you first pass through the level?
