Gmax was basically a free version of 3ds max with lot a features missing. I say "was" because it hasn't been updated since 2005, it's pretty much dead, and there's not much use for it now IMO. If you want a free alternative to 3ds max go with Blender.

Also know that one big limitation in Gmax is that it doesn't support DDS files. So you would have to convert all the textures to TGA if you wanted to see meshes textures in the viewport. Very annoying. I stopped using Gmax ages ago. You can't light-map with it either. :P

Also, if you want to do anything that involves BF1942/BFV, then use Max 8 or 7. The MDT tools don't work with Max 9.
