Alpha maps in 3ds max using Xoliul Shader

Hi, im currently trying to get alpha maps working using the Xoliul Shader in 3ds max.

When I import my mesh and turn alpha on in the settings it gives me something weird.

This was with soft shadows in the perferences on, but then i then changed it to hard shadows and it gave me this result as seen below.

Its close but as you can see, you can see the actual geometry of the hair like you can see the planes which is most notable at the top they are reflecting. Its not 100% transparent but more like 80-90%.

Just wondering has xoliul always been like that, or is it a bug. Seems like when i use hardware shading it doesnt like it and i tried using the clipping feature as well in xoilul but doesnt help either. Im using max 2011 btw
