XNB back to its original form

Hi, i would like to know if its possible to convert an XNB file back to its original form by using other applications, and vice-versa.

Ex: XNB to XML.

I wouldn’t like users to be able to modify such important files.

XNB files are not meant to hide your data, so I wouldn’t count on them to do so. The file being binary and not plaintext is just a side effects and not the main goal of it.

For example, this article talks about a tool to extract PNG from XNB:

With that said, are you sure you really want to hide your XML files? If players want to cheat / mod let them have fun, and if its multiplayer game you should not put so much trust on client side anyway.
