are you saying that the map you have painted looks washed out when you apply it in max? If so, I'd say it's a color space issue. Try putting a 0.45 gamma on the texture if max lets you do that. Or set the texture to SRGB instead of linear if you have the option for that too. (sorry, it's been a while since I've been in max, I forget what the options for incoming textures are) -

It's supposed to go in the 'specular level' slot not the 'specular color' slot.
