Some users have reported performance and framerate issues with The Bard's Tale IV, even if they meet or exceed the minimum system requirements. We apologize for the performance concerns, and we are working to identify and resolve these issues as soon as possible.
if you're having performance issues on your hardware, we highly recommend you go into Options -> Graphics and click the "Auto Detect" button in there. This will scan your system and pick what the game engine feels are optimized settings for your system.
If you have a solid state hard drive (SSD), we also advise you to install it on there, as it should improve loading times and general responsiveness.
