Is it common in the Steam version of TSL for your character to be locked in place in combat and unable to move afterwards cause that's been happening to me alot lately.

It's not the monitor itself, it's the game running at refresh rates beyond what it was designed for (remember it was designed to run at 30Hz/fps on a CRT television). You see similar kinds of things with certain games having physics issues when the game runs faster than it was designed for. As with KOTOR, a common problem with console ports. Another example of framerate-related weirdness - in Fallout 4 above 60fps you will end up getting trapped when interacting with computer terminals, unable to exist.
”unable to exist”, huh? Guess that’s one way to cause a critical existence failure. In all seriousness though, I knew that old games may run too fast thus making it impossible to do anything, because you’ll, for example, just plain hit a wall before having a chance to act, but freezing caused by similar reasons was news to me. It’s a bizarre thought. Well, unless the game is actually run by GPU and not CPU, in which case I can imagine it going haywire.
Not that I would know, mind you. I’m a software person, not a hardware one.
