    I have a Black WiiU with acces to the Homebrew Launcher.

    I used Haxchi and a VC to put the HBL in the main menu.

    Does this mean that I am ready to use WUP Installer to install games?

    Also, if I am able to install games can I play them online?

    I have read a bunch of stuff but I'm a little lost. Any answer will be much appreciated.

    Yes you are ready to install games and yes you can play online with no problems.

    I read in a tutorial that I need to launch Haxchi everytime I boot up the console. And that I need to set up Coldboot Haxchi to override this. Does this apply in my case?

    I read in a Tutorial that I need to run Haxchi everytime I start the console. And that I need to setup Coldboot haxchi to bypass this. Does this apply for me as well?

    You need to setup Haxchi to autoboot to sysmenu. It needs to be launched everytime system was rebooted. Just look at wiiubru.com/guide [Haxchi time! section] or my redNAND-free guide [Haxchi section] and you should see how to change config.txt.
    CBHC just Coldboots Haxchi and instantly launches desired thing.

    Like i said, CBHC is only coldboot solution for Haxchi.
    Just go with obsolete Haxchi.

    Ok. So if I understand correctly. I can't just play a game immediately after boot but first I have to launch Haxchi?

    Sure you can, Felek666 is wrong.
    You can play every Wii U game without launching Haxchi.

    You only need haxchi for Virtual console and these Eshop games like terraria (forgot the name)

    "Every game" *cough* You're wrong here, Legit games*
    Some Legit Games will require sigpatching if fake DLC is present.
    eShop, VC and other various crap is fake signed.

    It depends on whether the combination of (game + update, if any + DLC, if any) are "legit" [signed by Nintendo for your console or all consoles]

    If all of those titles* related to a game are legit, it will start even without CFW (which Haxchi can perform as one); else a CFW will be required.

    You don't risk anything by forgetting to run CFW - you will just get a misleading "The NNID that purchased this was deleted" error :)


    * You may have heard of "contenthax": this concept means you can edit a game's files (but not its executable) and still have it working without CFW if it worked without CFW before, but let's keep this for a later level :)

    You didn't mentiond anything about DLC's

    As far as i have tested them they still boot but without the dlc.

    As i have said VC and these EShop games need a sig patch.
    EVERY other "normal"/Retail Wii U game will boot just fine.
