The Trouble Meter is a HUD meter on the screen in Bully.

PurposeEdit

The trouble meter measures how much trouble Jimmy Hopkins is in when he breaks the rules. Whenever Jimmy breaks a rule, the level of trouble that he is in will show up on the meter. The Prefects and Faculty on campus, Police outside of campus will display vision radius in yellow - if Jimmy enters their vision radius and it turns red, they will chase him to try and bust him.

To get rid of the Trouble meter, Jimmy must hide or stay out of authority's vision radius and wait until the meter drains to empty, or attend a class.

Trouble LevelEdit

Half Yellow Color (Half 1/3rd) Edit

If Jimmy's trouble meter is at a Half Yellow Color, the authority figures will yell at him rather then attempting to bust him.

Full Yellow Color (Full 1/3rd) Edit

If Jimmy's trouble meter is at a Full Yellow Color, the authority figures will attempt to bust him if they see him. At this Level and lower, Jimmy can apologize to Prefects after passing English 3, the Police and Faculty will accept his apology after he passes English 5. Once Jimmy apologizes to them, they will accept his apology and will his trouble meter will be empty. The offenses: Truancy, Trespassing, and Violating Curfew cannot be apologized for. If an Authority Figure is holding Jimmy, he has ten seconds to push a button (depending on the console you play on) to resist getting busted.

Orange Color (2/3rd) Edit

If Jimmy's trouble meter is at a Half or Full Orange color, the authority figures will generally be more aggressive to Jimmy. Starting at this level or higher, Jimmy is unable to apologize his misbehavior to the authority figures. If grabbed, Jimmy can still be able to escape.

Half Red Color (Hald 3/3rd) Edit

If Jimmy's trouble meter is at a Half Red Color, the authority figures will be very aggressive to Jimmy. At this level, there will be two authority figures to spawn and chase Jimmy. If an Authority Figure is near Jimmy, he will run towards him. If there is no authority near Jimmy, the game is programmed to spawn 2 authority figures out of nowhere and to chase him. If Jimmy is grabbed by an Authority Figure, he will be busted automatically.

Full Red Color (Full 3/3rd) Edit

If Jimmy's trouble meter is at a Full Red Color, the authority figures reach their maximum amount of aggression. All four authority figures from one group will spawn and chase Jimmy. As stated above, if an Authority Figure is near Jimmy, he will run towards him. If there is no authority near Jimmy, the game is programmed to spawn authority figures out of nowhere and to chase him. If Jimmy is grabbed by an Authority Figure, he will be busted instantly and automatically.
