Creating the xdf is easy, it's straight translation of map addresses into the software. Unless the person making the xdf knows exactly what each map does, all you'll have is a file loaded full of maps without axis values, populated with raw bytes. To accurately make an xdf for someone, you need to disassemble the code, and find out how it works.

If someone offers to make you an XDF for $50, turn them down, because they've either A) undervalued their work and may just take off with your money, or B) will give you an xdf without any indentifiers for any of the maps, which is useless for tuning.
