I've never heard of such a thing. I can load my Shenmue save that was created using VGA via composite with no issues. You must be doing something wrong. Are you trying to load a completed game save? If so, you can't. Completed game saves are only for transferring Ryo's items and progress to Shenmue II.
But if you say you can do it, maybe there is a way or something I misunderstood i'll try again with both a us and pal game/save Altough in my case it's the opposite, loading composites saves on a VGA monitor.

Hmmm, interesting. I'm guessing it's only the PAL version that does that because my US version doesn't have that warning screen. I think it may have something to do with the refresh rate. When using composite on PAL screens, the refresh rate is 50Hz vs. 60Hz with VGA. In the US, it's 60Hz either way.
Yes, maybe, altough usually you can select 50/60HZ in pal games with composites/rgb, don't remember with Shenmue.
So using the NTSC U version would fix my problem but the thing is that I wanted to play the Undub version which is only PAL I think? That's why I never tried with the US version now that I think about it.
So I could still use a PAL VGA save if anyone has one
