Orion Prelude ran perfectly after I installed Dotnet. Normally UDK or Unreal Engine games have a Dot Net Framework distributable bundled with the installer, but not all of the games use it. Orion Prelude definitely uses it and won't launch without it. After connecting to an online game, if you experience some frame lag, try lowing some of the settings like anisotropy or antialising.
