There really isn't a cheat, unfortunatly. YOu just have to keep practicing! It took me a really long time to get through that, too!

Keep playing try to collect them all and keep trying or there is a cheat:
Open the game system file and edit the file defuser.ini. And look for the keys that are empty and choose a key and type Ghost For Example:
And look for another empty key and type Walk For Example:
And Save The file. Now start the game (new or load)
Press The Key That Is Ghost And You Will Be Able To Fly and go THrough walls.
Lets Start With The Pixies Encounter
Go To outside The Castle And Press Ghost Key And Fly Up And Go To The Garden Of Hogwarts Not The Paddock Leave Hogwarts From THe Behind ANd You Will Find A Room Enter It And PRess The Walk Key To Exit Ghost Mode Collect The cards And Get Back To hogwarts Using Ghost Mode. Now Enter The Castle And Go TO The Library When You Find The Monster BOOk ANd Use Ghost modE aGain and go Through Any Wall And You Will FInd A Lighting Room. Exit Ghost MOde And Collecct ThE Cards And Get BacK tO Hogwarts.

I found it impossible too. The game has some bugs that when about to pass trough a cirlce it automaticaly pushes you down, left or right

I played this old game recently, but didn't find any helpful hints for this stage, so am posting here.

In the fifth course there are 58 rings and you have to get 56 of them (If you miss 3, you're better off restarting the round). The rings are smaller, and at some points, they are spread in a zigzag pattern. It is hard, but there are techniques to get through:

1) on the straighter sections of the course, time the wingbeats when buckbeak is just lower then the rings, so he flies up into them. Let him drop, and then repeat.

2) the more extreme left-and-right zigzags happen in the forest and after the last tunnel. You need to swoop round and into each zigzag, giving yourself plenty of turning space into the next ring. If you don't give yourself enough room, the gameplay bulldozes you off the path. Turn into the corners early.

3) there are extreme up-and-down zigzags, like the second tunnel. Try to hit the lower part of the top rings, then stop flying. Buckbeak drops pretty fast, so remember to let him fall to catch lower rings. You can also quickly swoop left or right to slow him down, if the rings are close together, then swoop back, into the lower ring

4) If the zigzags are still a problem, but you feel confident enough, choose two rings that you find hardest to get, and miss them out completely. Aim at getting all the rest.

5) Finally, although this technique isn't pretty, some times you can hit trees and logs long enough to wriggle buckbeak into the path of a ring. You can also land on the ground and take a break while you prepare for the next section.

Have fun! T
