Quick Quidditch

As the ghost guide leads the way, it will leave a trail of ghost studs. If you've been following him around ever since, then you should be able to collect enough studs to unlock this achievement.

Love the list of achievements but is there somewhere in the game I can go to see what I have achieved? I keep doing these tasks like fighting wasps and spiders and I try to do the right amount but I don't know if I've done it correctly.

Found this post by accident, but I was just thinking the other day that I should look something like this up.
I've completed a little over 80% of the game on my own, but I still need a couple of things that I just haven't been able to find:
Last 4 Character Tokens: I know one is Voldemort, one is from the "band" (I have the Vocalist, Guitarist, and the Drummer. What's the fourth one called and where do I find it?), one is Rita Skeeter (I found your explanation on how to get that one out of the Slytherin Dorm Lobby, but I don't see any locks on the ground like you described.), and I think the last one is a Ravenclaw of some sort (It falls between Padma-Ballgown and Penelope Clearwater).
Last Student in Peril. I have 49/50, and I can't find the last guy. I tried to read through everything, and I couldn't find one on here that I haven't already saved, unless I overlooked something.
(I already have ALL of the character tokens and Students in Peril from every story level, so I imagine they're in Hogwarts or Diagon Alley.)

After I get those, I'm sure the remainder of the Gold Bricks that I need (only 15) will add up, or I could just break down and buy them at Madam Malkin's.

I have similar problems to the ones described above. However, these solutions and screen prints don't apply to the DS version of the game. Even though I got here by following the directions for DS on your home page.

My particular problems (applied to the DS version) relate to not being able to access the characters to deal with the 'red' outlined objects in the game. Having reached the end of the first 2 years at Hogwarts I appear to be 'stuck' once I've dealt with the 'basilisk'. Having reached and slain my 'target' the game freezes after 'true wizar' status has been achieved. My only wayu out at that point is to 'exit' the game; which of course does not then record my score; which in turn prevents 'freeplay' of this chapter.

Going back through the game many times, all red-outlined objects are still blocked thereby preventing full achievement of the first 2 chapters which; in turn, prevents access to chapters 3 and 4. I have recorded 26,333,680 stud collections. I am 50% through the game but can see no way of progressing further with this which is infuriating and has put me off buying any further software for my Nintendo. I am also very upset by this as I was inially loving the challenges. Could anyone out there help me? I would be so happy to have the means to complete this game and buy another. SB
