When a regulation game ends in a tie, the International Tie Breaker rule is used. At the beginning of each team's at-bat the last batter from the previous inning is placed on 2nd base. It is not sudden death. Each team has an opportunity to bat each inning. The game ends when one team is ahead at the end of an inning.

What is the Texas tie breaker rule for softball?

Texas tiebreaker is when a game goes into overtime due to a tie. It is used instead of International tie breaker based upon the umpire's judgement. Basically, how Texas Tie Breaker works is the last batted out goes to second and whoever is on the line-up before her, whether they or out or successful, goes to third. (IE: lead-off batter is last batted out, bottom of the lineup starts on third [this was my team's situation, I was lead-off) Texas tiebreaker is definitely quicker than International, or at least in my experience, and from what I've witnessed and experienced, it is much faster.

What happens in a draw in softball?

Many things are possible. You can go into an international tie breaker, which is when the last out is placed on second, and the first person to score wins. (home team will still get a at bat though) the other thing you can do is to play a whole other game. You can also have a coin toss, the winner wins. A forfeit is also another option.
