2012 The unlockables

Posted by

Hello, the unlockables may be a daunting thing when it comes to them but I hope I can help you by easily locating each one with a detailed explanation.

A basic explanation:

The unlockables are bonus features added into the game by SI, these may include 'No transfer windows' which can turn on and off in the preferances menu or 'Owe you one' which is accesiable in every career once you have done what is wanted of you.

The unlockables:

Sugar Daddy:

What is it?

Sugar Daddy is the most known unlockable out there. This unlockable can be used to create a realistic budget for a top team (£50m for Chelsea) or make the game very unrealistic as you buy Messi for Southend. It can be enabled/disabled in the game in the preferences menu as many times as you like.

This can only be done with a club team.

To unlock:

Stay at a club for a minimum two seasons and make the board happy by buying players, keeping in budget and winning trophies. The amount you have to do is parallel to your clubs reputation.

What it does:

Sugar Daddy enables a board take over who inject cash into your squad but it also increases reputation allowing you to buy players with a higher standard than normal.

Place on the board:

What is it?

The unlockable place on the board is another one that can be enabled/disabled in the preferences however this can only be done in the menu's screen.

This can only be done with a club team.

To unlock:

Stay at the club over ten years while keeping the board happy.

What it does:

Allows you never to be sacked.

No Transfer windows:

What is it?

Quite an obvious unlockable which can be enabled/disabled when wanted in the menu's preferences.

This can only be done with a club team.

To unlock:

Make a profit for your club in the transfer window (the amount is in conjunction with your clubs reputation).

What it does:

As in the name, the no transfer windows unlockable eliminates windows allowing you to buy players whenever you want.

No Loan restrictions

What is it?

Quite an obvious unlockable which can be enabled/disabled when wanted in the menu's preferences.

This can only be done with a club team.

To unlock:

Get someone who you loan in to win an award such as league player of the year.

What it does:

Removes any loan restrictions such as loan windows.

No work permits:

What is it?

No work permits is an unlockable which can be enabled/disabled in the menu's preferences at will.

It is a useful unlockable if you plan to buy younger players from foreign countires.

This can only be done with a club team.

To unlock:

Buy a certain amount of players that require a work permit, these players must be Russian, South American or any other player with the tag 'FGN' by his name.

What it does:

Takes work permits out of the game allowing you to buy these players without any hassle of worrying they have the work permits to pass.

'Owe you one':

What is it?

This unlockable is an "in game unlockable", this means that it can be used once for in your career and that is it. This certain unlockable is great if your board don't give you enough transfer money and you need more without feeling like you want to cheat using Sugar Daddy.

This can only be done with a club team.

To unlock:

Stay at a club for 4 seasons and keep the board happy while, gaining a respectful amount of trophies.

What it does:

This makes the board grant one of your requests during the career with that certain club. It can be any request you like, an additional request can be made every n+1 years (n is the number of seasons taken to get your first when), you can also save up them so you can have two requests granted in one season if you have unlocked two.

Your son:

What is it?

This is another "in game unlockable" which is just a little feature as such.

This can only be done with a club team.

To unlock:

Buy a player and have him retire while having a testamonial (10 years at the club). He must play at least one game a season.

What it does:

Adds your son into your team as a youngster in the ranks, there is only one per career.

International Management:

What is it?

This adds in an option when starting a new game when selecting a team, a great option for those who are getting bored of club management.

To unlock:

Take over an international club and win a competition with them.

What it does:

Adds the option to start as an international team in the select a team menu.

Hi dec, big fan of your work on this site (and others) just wondering if yourself or anybody else has managed to unlock a place on the board with the 2012 version. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to, even though I'm 20+ seasons in, completely happy team, board, for all this time (at celtic) so yeah, just curious if its actually possible this year?

Thank you :)

I have a problem with "Your Son" unlockable. My problem is that I think I have completed it two times and I have no son in my team. I bought Andrea Ranocchia from Inter in 12/13 season. He played until season 25/26 in my team; obviously playing at least one game per season. Then he finally retired and had his testimonial and everything and after waiting 2 months no son has appeared in my team. Am I doing something wrong? Also I bought Sandro and he played 11 seasons and retired in 25/26 (the same season). Still I have no son :( Can someone help me please?

For a son to appear you need the player to perform well (7+ rating I think).

I'm almost sure they both performed well during their stay at the club. Ranocchia even scored at his last season.

Has anyone unlocked this achievement yet in the 2012 edition?

I have, so it is possible.

I don't think this is true.

Ok, I checked a previous save of my game and until the start of season 24/25 Ranocchia had these grades:

12/13 7.01

13/14 7.10

14/15 7.18

15/16 6.97

16/17 7.00

17/18 6.87

18/19 7.05

19/20 7.35

20/21 7.00

21/22 7.25

22/23 7.25

23/24 7.00

According to Dec it is normal that I did not receive my son. BUT, my other player, Sandro, has the following grades:

14/15 7.80

15/16 7.51

16/17 7.64

17/18 7.79

18/19 7.66

19/20 7.50

20/21 7.75

21/22 7.80

22/23 8.00

23/24 7.75

Both players retired at the start of season 24/25 so according to Dec I should have my son by now. Has anyone confirmed the inlockable works on iOS in 2012 edition?

Another retired player with testimonial and everything. This time was Neymar, still no son. I think there is a bug un iOS with that unlockable.

You can't pick his first name either its done randomly.

What players can you buy to get the "No Work Permits" unlockable. Haven't seen any players with FGN by their name? How many players do you usually have to buy to unlock this?

It is around 25 South America or FGN players (it is in the information like INJ is).

I've got "Owe you one" and I choose stadium expansion. But at the end of the season my stadium didn't become bigger as I expected. I've got message about new board coming to my club in the same season, maybe it was the reason of it? Anyway it was frustrating :(

There is no message saying it has been done it is just automatically upgraded.

Yes, of course, but if stadium's capacity remains the same, then it's obvious that expansion wasn't done.

That is odd, maybe sugar daddy overwrote it.
