Unfortunately, it seems it's pretty futile to try to make it work on the Pocket PC.

First, as the applet has a width of 681 and a height of 455 pixels, you'll need a VGA device to run it without major problems (scrolling if you will be offered the choice of scrolling at all). I've also checked the JAR file it's based on JDK 1.4, which is not supported by PIE plug-ins like CrEme or the old Jeode. Unfortunately, as Thunderhawk, the only one JDK1.5-compliant browser downsamples everything to QVGA resolution, it's highly unlikely you'll able to make this app work under Thunderhawk either so that all that the fine text/chat/server messages remain readable.

This all means you may want to ask the authors of the applet to make a PDA/mobile phone-optimized version.

You may also want to read this thread for a more technical description of the above-mentioned problems.

JDK 1.4 is a thing of past now
