Yes, yes they did.

Only one quest like this hasn't been wholly satisfactory. In Leisure Suit Larry 2- Looking For Love In Several Wrong Places, Larry must write a program in assembly language. We see him write about twenty lines of code. We are not told what that code is (the claim it is an entire operating system called Eunuchs is clearly a joke). I sent an e-mail to Al Lowe, creator of Larry, asking what the code did. I expected that when properly compiled and executed it made an ASCII pic of Larry or something similar. It turns out that it's just a snippet of the Command.Com file and does nothing. OTOH, I did receive a personal reply from Al Lowe. So even that quest had a good outcome.
