GMAX --> 3DS
Submitted by ArgCmdr

Repetitive question, isnt it? Well, in order to do this, you have to get:

+ Tempest, the Quake III Gamepack for GMAX.
Itll let you export GMAX models as .MD3.

+ 3D Exploration.
It used to be freeware before (either that, or download.com had a pirate version on its server). Dont know now. But this will let you go from MD3 to 3DS or MAX. You can also convert textures in mass with it when converting models.

First thing to do is, load your GMAX file with Tempest installed. Go to File, Export, and choose Quake III. Thats the first step.

Now, open 3D Exploration, and find the MD3 file. Right click on it, select Convert ---> Geometry files... On Convert to select 3D Studio Mesh (3ds), then rest of options as desired. Click on Convert, and you have your little nice 3ds file. In 1.8 it works that way, else select the MD3, go to Save As... and select 3DS (Thanks to MadHQ for the tip)
You can get Tempest here: http://www.turbosquid.com/gmax And 3D Exploration seems to be trial only now. Lucky me. But look around and youll eventually find it.
