    I using not64 on the vWii. It didn't work right. The speed was too slow. And injecting it on the Wii U virtual console doesn't work either. Why is this game so hard to emulate?

    Rare used custom microcode on all there N64 games to run the N64 a little faster. That requires a little work from Nintendo to get it to run in there emulator but they don't own Rare anymore, Microsoft does, so that support probably will never come.

    Is there a way to run Banjo Tooie on RetroArch?

    I use Project 64 specifically for N64, there's an insane amount of documentation on what works on what builds with what plugins. All of it is easy to find in there forums.

    Exactly what I wished for, but its pretty much impossible. Not even through injectiion. PJ64 is one of the ONLY ways to emulate this game at all.So you need a windows computer just to play it. Or get it on Xbox Live Arcade

    AFAIK the Mupen64Plus libretro core is capable of playing Banjo Tooie without crashes, so you'll just have to wait for that core to be added to the Wii U version of RetroArch.

    According to the Everdrive forums, your cart should be able to run it, however you will need an N64 Expansion Pak when playing Banjo Tooie on an Everdrive, due to how the anti-piracy crack for the game works.
