In the Progression listening test minigame in the gym (where you play infinitely) the Chord played before the progression is just the chord that comes first and not the one chord. Why is that?

It makes no sense to call a progression a iii-V-iii if you have no one chord as a base. Also in the Route-VI game it is different. This really bothers me as I like to play that game but often times it is just confusing without a one chord.

It makes plenty of sense. Taking the chords in isolation may look a bit odd, but considering a song as a whole, the harmony isn't the only thing that establishes the key center.

I do agree this is different from how the Route VI game works, but I'm not sure that's a problem. It does perhaps make it a bit harder than Route VI, but that's OK.

@Miles Walker: No, I just checked it out, and he's right. What you describe is how it works in the Route VI game, but not in the Progressions exercise. It always plays the first chord in the progression.

In the inversionist mini-game, it would be nice if the player could control the moment when we go to the next exercise after the answer... Sometimes I want to read the notes that were played (especially when I got them wrong), but it goes so fast that I don't have time...

You can freeze the screen, and even get to hear the individual notes from the correct and incorrect answers by pressing the c key after answering, or pressing the scales in the bottom left of the screen. It is a nice feature!
Sus2 and sus4 sound the same to me at the moment. It’s so frustrating :(

Don't get started. LMAO, some min and dim AND p4 and p5 or V-I and IV-I sound the same for me 🤷‍♂️

It’s really common for 4ths and 5ths to be perceived as sounding the same because they are the inverse of each other, so don’t be too hard on yourself.
