Im not certain what causes it, but *many* times the game simply becomes sluggish.

When the game is saving it is completely expected. No complains there.

Spell effects are certain to do that - i changed the spell particles to 50 instead of 100 and it got much better, but still happens. Especially around acid cloud ( or whatever is its name ). Many times when you try to drop a item the game bogs down too. And many times it does so in random intervals.

The problem is: It shouldnt be like that. Really. I have 4GB Ram, a quad core processor and a Radeon HD 5750 - That PC runs a lot of games that supposedly require a lot more processing power ( and especially grafic processing power ) than TOME, and still, TOME makes it slow to a crawl constantly.

Is there any known way to resolve ( or lessen) the problem?

The slowdowns are caused by the garbage collector being triggered at constant intervals, including when dropping items. Check this thread for more info: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=23480
