wait!... i still dont undesrtand
isn't the data the same in all intances?
"data" is the vertex buffer
i dont understand your second post
you could tell me what DrawInstanced( 1, 80000,0,1 ); is really doing to explain me, supposing that the vertex buffer just has one vertice in it... or 3 if that 4th parameter doesn't works when you have just 1 vertice.
