I just downloaded MC 1.6.1 and then tried Amidst v2.1 on old world saves and also on a world created with MC 1.6.1.
All worked fine.
This, of course, is with a totally unmodded copy of MC 1.6.1.
Repeat: I'm having NO problems with Amidst working with MC 1.6.1.
EDIT: I just checked and mincraft.jar (ver 1.5.2) still exists in my .minecraft/bin folder.
1.6.1.jar exists in a new folder called .minecraft/versions/1.6.1.
I suspect that Amidst v2.1 is using the 1.5.2 minecraft.jar for it's world map generation.
If that's the case, then my tests above are of no use.
I just created a world using 1. 6.1 (seed -1916308277, which has a LOT of villages etc.) the biome map produced by Amidst v2.1 using the 1.5.2 minecraft.jar appears to be an accurate representation of the world produced by MC 1.6.1.
With the 80-90% accuracy of predicted villages, temples, etc. actually existing that seems be inherent in Amidst.
So, in short, if you install MC 1.6.1 on a machine that already has MC 1.5.2 Amidst v2.1 will give you a usable map since the respective .jar files are located in different folders.
OBTW - The new launcher looks like it will allow you to launch MC 1.5.2 if you wish.
