I played 3. Rg8+ and said it was incorrect, when it's fact the same end result as playing 3.Bc5+

1. Qc5+ Ke8, 2. Qxf8+ Kxf8, 3. Rg8+ Bxg8 (Ke7, 4 Bc5#), 4. Bc5+ Ke8, 5. Rxg8#

Yes, your transposed solution is an equally correct mate in 5

predictibus solved it in 10min if only I could do it every time

This time if you did'nt say me that there was a way to win I did'nt find the solution.

No it's not "did'nt" it's didn't, don't use that ever again.
