There's a list of all the chords in musical notation format in another thread on this forum, if that's what you're looking for. It can be found here:
http://www.wehearandplay.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=350

Here is the image from that thread. These are all the chords in the Chordhopper game.

There are lots of ways of describing a particular chord.

All the chords that share the same notes have the same colour tiles in Chordhopper.

One way to name the first nine chords is like this:

C major root position
F major second inversion
G major first inversion
F major first inversion
G major second inversion
C major first inversion
F major root position
G major root position
C major second inversion

You could also give them names relative to some particular musical key. So, in C major, those same chords are:

I
IVc
Vb
IVb
Vc
Ib
IV
V
Ic

This wikipedia article explains a lot of different ways of describing the chords.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inversion_%28music%29

The important thing is that however you describe one of these chords, it contains exactly the same collection of tones in the same order.

This game does a wonderful job of teaching harmonic function and a poor job of teaching perfect pitch, which makes me lament the fact that it isn't presented in all twelve keys (major and minor included).

This was brought up in the other topic that is linked but I was wondering if those last chords are still in the game? I assume no one has gotten that far in the game because those chords will sound the same. Although they have different key signatures, they actually are enharmonic to the other.

I think one person has mentioned it to me. I was so focused on the programming (and on making all the little pictures) when I was creating the game that I didn't notice.

I realize this thread is really old, but does anybody know anything more about this problem of enharmonic chords in Chordhopper? I'm wondering if it help to, for example, use a drone as a reference pitch in order to resolve those ambiguities?

I don't have a solution, myself, but I am wondering if you're at a point in the game where the issue is preventing you from continuing?

No, I figure I've got a long way to go before I reach that point. I was wondering if anybody else knew when to expect difficulties. I can just forget about it for now.
