.xdb is a different format. Use SoCPUP or converter.exe with the -xdb switch.

Look in the 3. Utilities folder. There are more unpacker tools there and if the ones TKGP mentioned don't work, maybe some of the others will.

I remember reading about some recent German mod that purposely obfuscated its format to prevent unpacking easily - is this the same one? if so, none of the tools may work.

Possibly, At the moment the authors telling me he's not done anything to block people from unpacking the mod and making a translation for personal and it's my own incompetence and inability.

It'd be interesting to know if it is in fact the same one, Just downloading and unpacking the mod required joining a German site and obtaining a password.

AMK Soljanka EE?
If so it's not going to work regardless. I don't know if it was deliberate or they just inadvertently did something strange, but you need a very specific unpacker to get into their archives. Someone found one that worked a while ago, but I don't recall what it was.

I could maybe take a look at it and see if I can add support for their format. What's the link?

Well, just kidding, apparently. Decided to check for myself and both the latest and the 2013 version of converter.exe opens them fine (SoCPUP doesn't, though).
I have no idea why everyone was flipping out about this last year.

You'll need to contact a wizard for that, they locked it down tight lest anyone dare try modding their mod (heaven forbid.) converter.exe obligingly crashes and burns if you ask it to do anything with their dbs.
