Look, I have been emulating old games for YEARS, and the FBI still hasn't knocked on my door, (which btw this IS their department, just watch any DVD and it says it right there before the movie even starts that the FBI investigates piracy and can fine you for up to 250K, blah blah blah...), so I think you're fine, bruv. This stuff is too old and hasn't been sold by their parent companies in so long that the authorities don't give a crap. Really, they only start cracking down when folks try to monetize the software. So yeah, no, no chance you'll get arrested.
