    I got the hard sell the other day at a CTD promotion, I was offered more Hardie FOC if I bought the foam.
    I said I wasn't convinced, then the Hardie guy just switched off and walked away!!

    Does it still need the screws? What about filling voids etc on substrate?

    You still use screws with NMP and megastrength adhesive, I would defo use screws, and would only use foam adhesive on completely flat floors (If I ever use it)
