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.
