First off, it might be worth giving this a shot;

I doubt it will work looking at the description, but it can't hurt.

Also worse comes to worse, DL the trial version of Max. Export your map as a .OBJ file, import it into Max and then export from there to a .ASS

Basically gmax is just 3ds Max 4.2 with dummed-down features, and that's what it's detecting.

I don't use gmax, and this is just a shot in the dark, but would chimp and listener solve this?

Oh, I don't know, then. Unless you do what the person above said and download the Max trial and import your gmax file as an object, then export it as an .ASS.
