Coda is a modification of Unreal Tournament 3 which focuses on thoughtful, unforgiving, competitive, fast paced and stylish gameplay. It will provide several interesting systems which players will have to use in harmony in order to defeat their opponents. Initially the mod will focus around an original sword fighting system based on mouse movements. Next magic and psionic energy systems will be implemented, and tightly integrated into the sword fighting gameplay. Coda will feature a player control system which borrows mechanics from fighting games such as Guilty Gear. Several maps and completely original characters are planned. Stay tuned for frequent updates, this mod is currently under rapid development.

In time for entry into Phase 3 of Make Something Unreal Coda has been officially released!

Posted by KarlKarlJohn on May 15th, 2009

Coda, featuring French and Spanish localization, has been released just in time for submission into Phase 3 of the Make Something Unreal Contest! Coda features a unique gameplay system which combines sword fighting and magic attacks with thrilling taiji jumps. Detailed instructions on how to play Coda can be found in the Coda Online Manual.

The file you will need is CodaSetup_Alpha_0.0.700.exe. If your copy of UT3 is retail (not Steam) patch it first with the version 2.1 patch which is also downloadable from the Coda release page. If you need more help getting started, detailed instructions can be found on the Coda Wiki.

If you already have Coda, first take a moment to feel special, then make sure you run the auto-updater in your Start Menu to get the newly released version. Coda's still early in its development so it's important to always run the auto-updater before playing as the Coda team will be working hard to add features and fix any bugs.

As always the Coda team is available to chat via irc at #codamod on or if you don't have an irc client use this web app to chat right away. Comments, suggestions, and even criticism (the constructive kind, not the sort that makes me cry) are welcome on the Coda forums at Bugs may be reported at

Below are a few screens including the Coda character customization screen.

Wait, an INSTALLER for an Unreal Tournament 3 mod? Maybe the developers of other unreal 3 mods can actually learn from your example and stop giving players crappy rar files with obscure instructions.

Good job.

Great so far, the only problem is I can't find any servers to play on. Are you guys working on an instant action setting with bots?

We are hoping to add bots in a later release so people can get down with some practice and offline action. We currently have three servers up (Two US and One UK). Let me know if you are having problems seeing them in the browser or connecting and hopefully we can find a fix. You can checkout the server info here

I've noticed that servers can hide from you in the browser in a few ways.
Make sure you have "View full/empty" servers ticked just so even if they are full, you can still see that they are there.
Make sure you refresh for both Deathmatch and TeamDeathmatch game types. Right now it can be kind of quirky about filtering game types...
