    Hi,
    Does anyone here already have the Slingshot and is having the same issue that the bullet does NOT land at the red dot and instead flies 50m to the right / left / above it?
    I'm not even able to aim properly and need around 2-3 shots in order to see where the bullet flies.
    Can't be the only one.
    FYI I'm playing on Dolphin.

    Do you mean when you're trying to shoot at something pretty far away? I noticed it does that but found it normal... with the distance etc...

    Playing on Wii

    Maybe it's just more realistic? Like, no way a slingshot is going to fly perfectly straight for long distances in real life.

    It's not like OoT where the slingshot was basically as good as the the bow. In this game the sling shot has a limited distance. It will lose speed as it comes to the vertex, and then it'll start arcing downward. It'll only hit on the dot if you're close to your target

    It's not normal. If you use an aimed weapon in Dolphin, the shot goes nowhere near the aiming reticle even though it's correctly displayed where you are pointing. This doesn't happen on the Wii, though.

    Then there you go, an emulation error... I'll try messing around with it later as I just got the slingshot and I'm in no mood to go back to playing on the Wii... it's just too pretty in dolphin to go back.

    Correct, I'm am playing it on the Wii now and it stopped bothering me, on Dolphin its not just flying in a parabolic motion, it rather flies in an 45° angle.

    Solution found:

    Go into the graphics settings, click on the Hacks menu, disable "Skip EFB access from CPU". Aim will work perfectly after that.
