Ahh you probably running uncompressed mod. By default game use *.meg files which are basically compressed xmls. There is a tool to unpack all of that stuff in a easy way called EaW Extractor. Pretty straight forward. If you installed game in different dir than default you will need to browse to .meg file. That's about it.

You edit files in mod directory. Don't touch default. whatever:\whatever\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption\Mods\Phoenix_Rising_v1.2\Data\Xml
Yeah, that was the problem, I got .meg files.
Again, thanks for all your help Aizen Teppa!
