Did b-25's have some sort of leveler for the bomb run or is the auto level function in the game kind of a cheat for realistic game play

When you consider that the player is often "playing" the roles of pilot and bombardier, it's an acceptable kludge.

A pilot and bombardier trained together to be able to coordinate a bomb run with some level of accuracy and fine course corrections.

Yes it's a compromise, there was a reason those bombers had many crew after all. Alos a reason for copilots though the problem applies more to civil sims than Il2 et al. In fact, didn't the Norden sight in fact link directly to the AP?
