RE: Guide:- Compiling PPSSPP on Windows for Dummies
This can probably be put in an appendix or something, but if you want to have your own version strings in addition to the default "vX.X.X-gXXXX" stuff, edit Windows\git-version-gen.cmd, line 66 or so to this:

echo const char *PPSSPP_GIT_VERSION = "My Custom Build String %GIT_VERSION%"; >> "%GIT_VERSION_FILE%"

Change My Custom Build String to whatever you want, and you'll still get the nifty git version tag too.
Caveat: If you want to use backslashes( \ ) in it, make sure to use two instead(so that it's escaped): \\. Otherwise you'll get build errors.

For example, I'm using
echo const char *PPSSPP_GIT_VERSION = "TheDax Customs %GIT_VERSION%"; >> "%GIT_VERSION_FILE%"

And this displays as(Click/touch for full size):
