How do you make the app just lag instead of completely crash

Get help using Construct 2

I read about performance tips in the manual, but how do you make the app just lag instead of completely crash when it's pushing the RAM? I'd kill for just lag. :/

This seems like an odd question.

You reduce image sizes, reduce the amount of data stored in structures in RAM, limit the number of loop iterations...

Not odd at all. I studied the manual entries on performance tips, images are already 25% HD, meant for a total screen width (in landscape) of only about 500 pixels, there are no loop iterations, and I change layouts all the time just in case it helps.

@adamcreator - Usually your goal is to not make it lag and to crash is unusual. Did the crash happen on preview or on export --> play? Is it a mobile game? A little more information will help.

@chadorireborn I wouldn't mind lagging if it doesn't crash, because lagging without crashing means it isn't just giving up. But of course the problem is it just gives up completely and crashes. The crash only happens in the final APK build tested on my Samsung mobile device.
Thanks

@adamcreator - Does it crash on gameplay or crash on start?
