When you realize an old phone game from the early 2000's has more Disney bosses in it than KH 3, what a world we live in.
The croc is a Disney character? I don't recall him from the movie & the Disney wikia didn't turn up anything. If anything, I think it reflects on how Square designs original characters. The ones in VCast: parrot, crocodile, mummy, merchant; they FEEL like Disney characters. They fit into the worlds so naturally one could mistake them for genuine articles. You NEVER get that from Nomura, he's not even trying. VCast is like an insight on an alternate timeline where they took an entirely different approach with KH.

Well given the fact that in the original KH, there are only 3 categories of characters that it could fall under (it most definitely is NOT a heartless) those being Disney, Final Fantasy and original character (which is often considered more or less a subset of Final Fantasy; that opinion is not universal) it's more in line with being a Disney character since Disney has experience with crocs before

(also worth noting that it's in a world that branches off of England, in much the same way Neverland does)
Given the fact that it appears in a world closely related to Peter Pan due to both stories originating in England, and the fact that both Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan star Katherine Beaumont as Alice and Wendy respectively, I've come up with a theory. It's not a GOOD theory, but worth noting.

So KH V-cast is essentially a dream Sora is having in the gummi ship right? that's the whole plot of the game and fits seamlessly into the KH timeline if it was canon (it isn't but it very easily could be, just say that the events happen before SDG arrive at Hollow Bastion). Assuming that it's set before the penultimate world, that means Sora Donald and Goofy have visited every world besides the final two in KH, and thus know of Agrabah and Wonderland as they've physically been there. Swashbuckler's Island is pretty straightforward, Sora was always interested in pirates and his subconscious created a "world" based off of what he knew of them. Given the fact that Destiny Islands is situated in what I assume is a colossal ocean and the actual town seems pretty close to our modern world, it's likely that they had a substantial maritime history, with all of the trappings that come with it. The kids play pirate with wooden swords, Sora expresses an interest in sailing a pirate ship in Port Royal, and they even build a raft to set out on an adventure. So it's not too farfetched to assume that it's a world solely created from his memories and knowledge of deserted islands and swashbucklers.

As for the crocodile in Wonderland, that's simple really. Assuming it is between Neverland and Hollow Bastion on the timeline as I stated earlier, Sora and co. already experienced their near death experience with Tick Tock acting as their executioner before learning to fly. Whether or not Destiny Islands folk have any concept of large semi aquatic reptiles is a discussion for another day, but Sora definitely has seen one and thus his mind is aware of what constitutes a crocodile. Since V-cast is a dream however, it's a realm where nearly anything can happen (a proto-realm of sleep before 3D was a twinkle in Nomura's eye) and reality itself isn't a guaranteed constant. So Sora can meet with people and animals in V-cast that he is aware of, but in differing circumstances than what he initially saw in when he was awake. Thus you've got an abnormally colored crocodile boss in Wonderland (a world already made of a dream itself) where there wasn't one before.

This concludes my Ted Talk, goodnight.

(God, it's so nice to be talking on a forum again as Discord is so preeminent these days)

What were Donald and Goofy doing in Wonderland? Weren't they captured?

Someone on YouTube who played Wonderland:

I do actually remember the Caterpillar appearing.

Wonderland in Mobile really had have a lot from the movie. More then KH1 did. One thing I remember it had was a full Walrus and the Carpenter themed room. I can’t remember if there were actual characters or were a picture like the Mad Hatter and March Hare from KH1. But it really surprised me at the time to include those of all characters and side plots.

It’s sad that KH Mobile never went beyond Wonderland. It was a simple game you played on a phone with number pad and a few spare buttons to control everything. Wonderland is when it really started to add more from the movie.

Let’s hope someone finds the rest of the game someday.

The crocodile has nothing to do with Neverland.

The crocodile is from the caterpillar's poem "How Doth the Little Crocodile" which he recites to Alice in the movie using the smoke from his hookah.

Well, that shoots my theory in the foot. A shame, I thought I had a pretty good setup. Well, at least it makes sense now.

UPDATE: I contacted RegularPat himself and told him of our attempt to recover the Wonderland files. He said he can't make a guaranteed 100% commitment to making a video/spreading awareness of it as he has other videos in his backlog but will consider it. He does find the game somewhat interesting.

Potentially stupid question incoming: lately I've been getting into stuff like N64 betas/rom hacks printed onto actual carts... it would be totally impossible to put this game on a PS1 disc once we have Wonderland, right?

Like burning it onto a Sony branded CD? I suppose it is possible and likely easier than getting N64 rom hacks onto a cartridge. I wouldn't know much about it but I suppose it would be feasible. Curious to see how we'd map the buttons though.

Considering it's a phone game and not a playstation game? No.

Hi! Just curious if, once all game files are found, there's a possibility that it can be ported to other devices such as PC, Android or iOS?

It's coded in a Java variant so I imagine it'd be possible. Might be the only plausible way to get it playable if we can't figure out an emulator.
Worst-case scenario someone could rebuild it from scratch using the original game assets.

I made a backup for posterity and for future-proofing of every file posted here regarding C781 Modification, all the KH files themselves, all other BREW games I've found (Including recently released Tomb Raider), a Zeebo, BREW 4,02, and BREW MP SDK's I found, and another "Jailbreak" I stumbled upon looking for other BREW games.

It's for the: LG VX8610 Decoy, LG VX8800 Venus, LG VX9100 enV2, and LG VX9200 enV3 phones.
(LG VX8610 Decoy being the BEST phone for 3D games, as it has a joystick, not a d-pad)
It allows playing unsigned BREW games, just like the C781 "Jailbreak" mentioned above. All files involved and guide are archived here.

I tried the C781 jailbreak on Windows 7, and Windows 10, and the program wouldn't load, and the drivers wouldn't install both times. So I thought an alternative would be a good option for people : )
There were a lot of links dying left and right, and more will be lost in the future for the downloads at least, so I just wanted to have them safely kept in my 20 Year account : D

Link to folder: (not completely ready, will update within a few weeks with an updated guide for LG Jailbreak)
https://1fichier.com/dir/rkU5FRfB

Zeebo, Brew, MP SDK Source:

(EDIT: I tried this with the LG Decoy with the LGDownload program and it "bricked" my phone using a UEFI Windows 10. It put the phone in Download-mode and then didn't upload it. KRAZE saved me by letting me know how to enter LG Download mode, pressing 5+Power WHILE plugged into the pc turns it into download mode, and then using LGDownload tool's emergency function allowed me to put the new software on the phone. From my experience LGDownload works much better than the LGNPST program, but I'll include more info in a post in a couple of weeks.)

Thank you so much for the hard work of everyone contributing their builds of the game, and to Kraze1984 for all the hard work they've done in making all these playable. I wish I could contribute more, but all I can do is root everyone on to continue spreading the need for the final chapter, and for other great V-cast games to be dumped as well! I'm on the lookout for phones that might possibly have the game on them currently, it seems like LG phones are pretty easy to dump from, anything that can be used with Bitpim and/or Revskills programs can easily have the files extracted (rooted/jailbroken or not) so those wouldn't be a bad option to go for. I'll put out a video and make a post on all my findings within the next couple weeks, college is bogging me down RN so I'll have to wait a little bit to get all my info/files together.

About the C781 Program: I tried using the C781 Program to get the game running on my phone, and it's not working for me, but I'll be working on it and updating on what was wrong with my windows drivers that kept it from working for me in the post I'll make within the next few weeks.

So options to play the game currently are:

(recommended option) C781 phones using NCMC PST Program. I'll add the drivers to my post that I used to get this to work. If you can get this to work, the phones are cheap, work great, and are very available on Ebay. (Use this program on windows 7 with BIOS, UEFI DOES NOT WORK WITH THE DRIVERS!)

Getting one of the aformenitioned LG Phones off Ebay, and use the guide with LGDownload on a BIOS Windows 7 computer (UEFI DOES NOT WORK)

Using "Melange" android BREW emulator to play most BREW games (KH doesn't work currently)
More info here: https://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/Melange

Or, getting "Infuse" on a Windows phone to emulate BREW If/when it gets released (seems still active, so I hope they continue working on it, but as KRAZE said, it's a long way from being complete, so don't get your hopes up...)
More info here: https://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/Infuse

Re: Flashing VX8610 - I never tried with that phone, but the person who posted the guide flashed the patched firmware and that worked. Probably, there was a problem during flashing. You need to put the phone into download mode - it was I think 5+power button or *+powerbutton, and reflash it again. It is very difficult to brick an LG phone.

Re: C781 PST - this is the issue that the phone is not detected by the PC. Check whether the Modem mode is set on the phone, and the phone is detected in the device manager. You should have a Modem AND a COM port. The PST does not work on Windows 10, as the phone is detected only as a Modem. Also you might have a phone with a damaged USB port.
