Please note that I am not very familiar with the Opengl library ...

 

 What is the 2.1 equivalent of "glDrawElementsInstanced" ?

 

This recently popped up on a test as being incompatible with 2.x graphics cards.

There is no real direct equivalent... is there?
        for (int i = 0; i < primcount ; i++) {
            instanceID = i;//pass to shader somehow
            glDrawElements(mode, count, type, indices);
        }

Edit. Bah beaten, some older drivers will have it as an EXT extension rather than ARB as well.
