Yes zero; in infinite/analysis mode it automatically uses zero by default.

Thanks for the tip.
So, I have Komodo 8 analyzing positions in Chessbase and the default seems to be a DRAWSCORE of -7. I should change it to zero...or close to it at least?

Analysis (infinite) mode ignores the option and just uses zero. So no need to do anything.

We are testing a beta version of it now, so it shouldn't be long.

As usual, I expect Komodo will regain number one spot on the nonblitz lists, while not necessarily on the blitz lists, although 9.4 will certainly be improved in blitz.
