Hi.

Im writing a small 2D game. I want it to work on older hardware. was thinking of just using fixed functionality but i decided against that.

Quick Question.

will using "built in" atribute arrays (like glColorPointer) make the game work on more pc's than using generic vertex attribute array's? or were both ways introduced in the same version of opengl.

Thnx!

If you want to support Intel hardware, which tend to support GL 1.3 or 1.4 or 1.5, then you should use the built-in stuff.
If you don't care for Intel, then all ATI and nVidia already support GL 2.0 for about 10 years now.
