Default Bake Shadows


is it possible to bake the shadows in Maya and only the shadows?
I know i can bake a light map with shadows, but i dont want the light.
The lightning of the scene makes the game engine later, but the shadows should be baked on the textures.

hmmm... i don't have any experience baking lights and shadows - but i'm wondering if you could make the light just cast shadows (and no light), and then bake that... just a thought.
