Hey, sorry for not reporting this earlier - in recent months I've found that hardware watchpoints don't function correctly (tested both on Windows and Linux). They previously used to work on 0.7.3, and must have broken some time between then and the release of 0.8.0.

Here's a minimal example using libtonc:

Example code

(can use this template to compile if you need)

#include <tonc.h>

int my_num = 0;

int main() {
	irq_init(NULL);
	irq_enable(II_VBLANK);
	while (1) {
		VBlankIntrWait();
		my_num = qran();   // Assign random value
	}
}

Debug scripts

Windows:

start "" /B "C:\Users\exelotl\path\to\mGBA.exe" -g mgba-watchpoints.elf
pause
C:\msys64\opt\devkitpro\devkitARM\bin\arm-none-eabi-gdb.exe mgba-watchpoints.elf -ex "target remote localhost:2345"

Linux:

mgba-qt -g mgba-watchpoints.elf &
sleep 2
/opt/devkitpro/devkitARM/bin/arm-none-eabi-gdb mgba-watchpoints.elf -ex "target remote localhost:2345"

GDB session - mGBA 0.7.3

✔️ behaves as expected

Hm, gdb. I don't tend to use that as often so it's broken from time to time. I think I switched which type of watchpoint is set by default in 0.8.
