I'm trying to get a model given to our team out of 3ds max 9 and into our game. I've got a decent-looking mesh & material with diffuse, normal, and specular working, but the specular isn't quite right and a lot of max settings aren't really translating obviously to me. Of particular note are the gloss & reflective map settings. I'm not trying to perfectly represent the renders, but a fairly accurate depiction would be great. Does anyone know of a fairly comprehensive description of the lighting model? I'm looking for equations, etc. To reiterate- Max 9, need to figure out what equations it's using to light my model. Specular, gloss, and reflection of particular importance.

You can find shaders for materials used in max in its installation directory in maps/fx. But note that those shaders are probably copyrighted, so you can't just copy them.
