A few issues:

a) You're unlikely to make something as advanced as a multiplayer chat room with the free version.
b) Why should someone take the time to teach you everything that's needed for that to work? There are many tutorials on how to do the various bits of it - go look at them first.
c) If you write it proper English and at least spell properly or TRY then you'll find more people willing to put the time into help you.
d) What is a 'dope ass chat room'? A chat room is a chat room surely?

A chatroom is not that advanced. Anyone could do a basic setup under 100 events, it just might not be worthwhile. But then again, at least there would be users so transitioning to a more advanced system under a personal license would be viable at that point.

Very few cover using Socket.IO and Nodejs with C2, and even then, it actually requires a 3rd party plugin since Socket.IO is not supported by the current Websocket plugin.

That is true. It's hard to take your post seriously, @woddakota.

There's no need to point that out...

All that being said. Wodda, you'll want to leverage the multiplayer plugin, especially if you've not used Nodejs extensively. You'll mostly be on your if you decide to use Websockets.

I recommend the multiplayer tuts starting here: https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/892/mu ... 1-concepts

Ah, thanks for the correction - didn't realise a chatroom would be simple.

Well, a simple chatroom would be simple. I mean, the multiplayer chatroom example itself is under 100 events (~38) and can be previewed by free users. Unfortunately it's not exportable due to free restrictions, but with work and progress and something to show, by the time the 100 event limit is reached, the project should be decent.

If you want to make it with Socket.IO and Node.JS you should take a look at this tutorial:

Are you going to continue support for the plugin?

@DatapawWolf since i haven't made it i cant continue "support" in form of releasing updates of the actual plugin.
On questions or other regards i will continue to help people as best as i can.
But as stated, i won't recommend Socket.IO anymore since it isn't the suprerior multiplayer plugin anymore.
The official one has multiple very usefull things that the Socket.IO doesn't have (NAT Punch-Through, P2P, UDP).
So, ill repeat: On questions ill help, but recommending using it i won't (dayum, dat yoda grammar :D ), you are in better hands using the official plugin.

@woddakota could you get them to donate say, after purchasing a license?

@SgtConti neither is "superior." They are both good for different projects. :p
