I'm playing through Ocarina of Time on the Wii (Virtual Console), and due to eyesight issues (I've got keratoconus, which results in light trails on bright images, causing troubles with similarly contrasted pictures), I'm having troubles navigating through the Haunted Wasteland to get to the Spirit Temple, having attempted it nearly 30 times.
I've read a few guides and watched a few walkthrough videos, but the guides just say "follow the flags", while the videos just waltz on through like it's nothing. I've also opened up my phone camera and inverted the colours to try and use it as a "lens of truth" of sorts, but due to Android's "smart colour inversion", the orange of the desert is still orange, and not blue like I'd expect. I've even used a capture card to watch (and invert) the game on my PC, but that still didn't work.
Is there an easier way to get through (e.g. "use the lens of truth", "look which way the wind is blowing" or "walk 45 degrees from the merchant sign, then at the next flag, walk turn to face the wind and walk straight")?
